Do you add “Signature on File” to your No-Fault Bills?

If you do not sign each of the bills you submit to the No Fault carrier, it has the right to delay the bill and demand a bill be submitted with your original signature.  According to a 2006 lower court decision, the insurance company is not obligated to accept a copy of an Assignment of Benefits nor electronic signature or the words “Signature on File” on your HICFA form.
