even if it was a check off line, their is generally some pretty hefty deductibles and cost involved in medical situations even with fricking "health insurance"

Do all potential passengers in your vehicles have to produce a current certificate of coverage before they can take a seat?

And even if you health insurance pays your medical cost, you can still recoup all of your 100% medical bills in your UM even though health insurance company is paying for most of it. (try to not let them find out you were in accident! LOL)



so you're trying to profit off of an accident?




and do you guys really know people without health insurance?


ETA: and in the "3 months out of work" example, if you don't have at least 3 months salary in an accessible savings then you better drop that UM and get to saving some money

Not read all replies. Med-pay is a much better buy than UM if your concern is medical bills. It's cheap, and it's fault free. UM is not fault free.

If your concern is general damages, you need UM. If wages only, you can get by with UEO. I selected UMBI with lower limits than liability, but then again, I have huge liability limits.

So Joe whacked your vehicle and you have johnny sitting beside you who got crushed. Joe's fault. Joe has lowest limits cause he's a stupid frick. YOu're saying your UM won't kick in cause not your fault? You're wrong.

UM is not fault free. Med-pay is. If you cause an accident, you and everyone in the car gets med-pay. If you cause an accident, you cannot collect UM in any way. Your passengers cannot collect your UM, but can collect your liability. Problem is, liability can simply refuse to pay with no penalty. Med-pay must be paid quickly regardless of any fault determinations.

No, it's not. A driver cannot be both an insured and an underinsured driver under the same policy. A passenger can collect his own UM, but not your UM.

Back out?

These go together. Seems clear to me, but looks at if some of you read it standing alone.
