 AN  ACT  to  amend the insurance law, in relation to  increasing certain
   monetary limits under the comprehensive  motor vehicle insurance repa-
   rations act

   THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND  ASSEM-
 BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:
 
   Section 1. Paragraphs 2 and 3 of subsection (a) of section 5102 of the
 insurance  law,  paragraph  2  as  amended by chapter 320 of the laws of
 1991, are amended to read as follows:
   (2) Loss of earnings from work which the person would  have  performed
 had  he not been injured, and reasonable and necessary expenses incurred
 by such person in obtaining services in lieu of those that he would have
 performed for income, up to [two] THREE thousand dollars per  month  for
 not  more  than  three  years  from the date of the accident causing the
 injury. An employee who is entitled to receive monetary payments, pursu-
 ant to statute or contract with the employer, or who receives  voluntary
 monetary  benefits paid for by the employer, by reason of the employee's
 inability to work because of personal injury arising out of the  use  or
 operation  of  a  motor  vehicle, is not entitled to receive first party
 benefits for "loss of earnings from work" to the extent that such  mone-
 tary payments or benefits from the employer do not result in the employ-
 ee  suffering  a  reduction  in  income or a reduction in the employee's
 level of future benefits arising from a subsequent illness or injury.
   (3) [All] ANY AND ALL other reasonable and necessary expenses incurred
 INCLUDING,  WITHOUT  LIMITATION,  MEDICAL  TRANSPORTATION,   NON-MEDICAL
 TRANSPORTATION,  PET  CARE  SERVICES,  HOUSE  CLEANING SERVICES, LAUNDRY
 SERVICES, AND FOOD PREPARATION AND DELIVERY  SERVICES,  up  to  [twenty-
 five]  FIFTY dollars per day for not more than one year from the date of
 the accident causing  the  injury.  IN  DETERMINING  WHETHER  AN  "OTHER
 EXPENSE"  IS  REASONABLE  AND NECESSARY, THE CERTIFICATION OF A TREATING
 
  EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                       [ ] is old law to be omitted.
