Personal Injury Protection (PIP) Billing
What is PIP?
• Personal Injury Protection is a part of your auto insurance policy. It is designed to take care of you
immediately after an accident.
• If you have PIP, you MUST use it. Your health insurance will not cover your expenses if you have PIP.
• If you were not the “at-fault” party, your PIP will be reimbursed by the 3rd party.
Benefits of PIP
• PIP is no-fault, so it doesn’t matter who caused the accident…you’re still covered.
• Most PIP coverage is for 3-years or $10,000, whichever comes first. Some policies have higher limits.
• PIP covers medical payments, wage loss, and loss of services.
• There is no deductible. There are no co-pays.
What is Med Pay?
• Med Pay is a medical-payments-only version of PIP. It does not cover wage loss or loss of services.
