We have previously written about how important medical payments coverage can be if you are injured in any car-related accident. Medical payments coverage (or medpay benefits) under your auto insurance policy are not health insurance and they are benefits that you should unquestionably have under your policy. Most people mistakenly believe that because medical payments coverage benefits are so helpful, and available in a variety of different situations if you are hurt in a car-related incident, the coverage must be expensive. So, let's talk about how much does medical payments coverage cost under your car insurance coverage.
HOW MUCH DO MEDPAY BENEFITS TYPICALLY COST?
Medical payments coverage is extremely inexpensive. Given that the operation of cars is one of the most dangerous activities we engage in regularly, you would expect that medical payments coverage would be really expensive. That is not the case. In fact, medical payments coverage is so cheap that, even if the coverage was not good, you would probably still want to add it on. Medical payments coverage (or medpay benefits) under your car insurance policy costs about $20 A YEAR for $10,000.00 in coverage.
In other words, for about $20 a year, you could receive coverage for the most dangerous activity you engage in regularly and it will cover the vast majority of injuries and treatment that you might receive in an accident.
If you do not have health insurance, medical payments coverage is a great way to minimize some of the risk associated with not having health insurance. Also, you will not need to be worried about an inability to pay your co-pay under your health insurance. There is no co-pay that is due under your medical payments coverage.
