Podiatry Protection Program Registration Underway

New York State Podiatric Medical Association Podiatry Protection Program (PPP) is available to members in good standing. The Plan is designed to protect the legal and financial interests of podiatrists facing public and private administrative proceedings.

The Plan provides legal coverage in exchange for a payment for potential claims, proceedings, and/or investigations before the New York State Education Department, Medicaid or Medicare, Workers’ Compensation, the United States Office of Civil Rights (HIPAA), United States Occupational and Safety Health Administration, IPRO, and any Health Maintenance Organization (HMO) or other insurance/managed care plan, provided that coverage for HMO and insurance/managed care plan issues relates only to claims, proceedings, and/or investigations where the HMO or insurer seeks to recover or recoup money from a podiatrist for fraud or similar alleged wrongdoing and not to ordinary billing disputes or routine denials of reimbursement claims.
