Bellevue residents like you have a full plate when dealing with medical insurance. Let The LePley Law Firm help by explaining important things that you need to know in order to receive compensation, avoid unnecessary expenses, and more. Today, we will take a look at PIP medical pay.
PIP medical pay is one thing you may have heard of, but what is it? PIP is a shorthand term for personal injury protection. This is one of two main types of insurance you can buy for your car, with the other being Medical Payments coverage, also known as MedPay. In some states, having either PIP or MedPay is actually a requirement. Generally speaking, neither are as well-known as other types of car insurance like collision, liability, or comprehensive.
The main intent of these types of insurance is to cover medical expenses. PIP also covers loss of income and loss of essential services, making it a great tool for anyone who has been involved in an accident that takes away your ability to work for an extended period of time. It can cover personal loss and funerary expenses in the event of a fatality. PIP coverage extends to the driver of a car at the time of an incident, along with other authorized drivers, passengers, and people living in the households of the drivers.
