What is Med Pay Coverage?

If you live in California, you might have heard of Medical Pay Benefits coverage, or Med Pay. This is an option you can choose for your auto insurance policy to cover the cost of medical treatment if you are injured in an auto accident. Some states require this type of coverage, sometimes known as Personal Injury Protection. However, California does not require drivers to purchase Med Pay.

What Does Med Pay Cover?

If you or anyone in your vehicle is injured in an accident, Med Pay will cover the cost of reasonable and necessary medical bills. It doesn’t matter who was at fault for the accident—Med Pay will cover you regardless. This coverage can be used for you and your passengers if they are injured.

If you have been injured, you should contact your insurance company to find out what your policy covers. There may be exclusions pertaining to the types of treatment that are covered. Remember that your insurance company cannot raise your insurance rate for utilizing your Med Pay coverage, as long as you were not at fault for the accident.

“Med Pay is a wise option for California drivers who want to ensure their medical costs will be covered in case of an auto accident,” said Attorney Walter Clark, founder of Walter Clark Legal Group.
