After you have been involved in a car accident, you may find yourself looking at your policy trying to understand what types of benefits you are entitled. One premium that you may have that is extremely helpful during an accident is called medical payment coverage. Medical payment coverage is generally optional coverage. When you are involved in a car accident, this type of coverage will cover your medical expenses up to the policy limit. The policy limit typically varies from $1,000 to $10,000.
Depending on the carrier, medical expenses will only be paid for up to a year from the date of accident. Med pay is no fault insurance, which means regardless of who is at fault this coverage is still recoverable to the entitled party. Additionally, even qualifying passengers in your vehicle are entitled to these benefits.
