A big win for C. Buontempo in CURE v. Hudson Regional Hospital
In CURE v. Hudson Regional Hospital, et al. MER-L-1110-22, CURE filed an Order to Show Cause in attempt to reverse an arbitration award. They argued that the DRP committed prejudicial error by determining the treating provider had overcome a MRO report which, by the administrative code, is given the presumption of correctness. Further, CURE argued that the DRP had inappropriately calculated the usual, customary and reasonableness (UCR) standard in deciphering payments to the providers. I argued the DRP did not commit prejudicial error and had considered all evidence correctly. As such, the arbitration award should be enforced. The Court agreed by denying CURE’s action and enforced the underlying arbitration.
