What is SR-22 coverage?

SR-22 insurance is not a technical policy. What is an SR22 form? Your auto insurance company provides an SR-22 form as proof to your state that you currently have the required amount of insurance needed. These are typically referred to as SR-22 insurance policies, even though they aren’t policies at all.

Normally, an SR-22 is needed in situations where previous accidents have occurred or cases that require documentation to show that the owner holds medical auto insurance coverage.

In other words, you will only be required to have SR-22 insurance if you are deemed a high-risk driver. Even the best SR-22 insurance coverage will typically not cover any injuries to you or damage to your vehicle, so MedPay or personal injury protection (PIP) is used in most cases.

What is medical payments (MedPay) coverage?

MedPay coverage, also referred to as medical payments coverage, is a policy that provides specific coverage after an accident has occurred, regardless of who is at fault. Normally, this is a policy with a coverage limit, so there generally is not a deductible. MedPay usually covers financial costs for:

  • Medical treatment
  • EMT/ambulance fees
  • Hospital expenditures, like X-rays
  • Aftercare bills
  • Funeral expenses
  • Professional nursing services and care
  • Prosthetic limbs
  • Dental procedures needed as a result of an accident
  • Injuries sustained as a pedestrian or riding a bicycle if a vehicle hits you

Is MedPay per person? MedPay coverage pays medical expenses for you and any passengers in your vehicle who are injured during an accident or auto-related injury. Essentially, it is a per-person, per-accident coverage policy.

What states require MedPay? Currently, only Pennsylvania and Maine require MedPay coverage. Other states will allow you to buy MedPay if companies in those states offer it as an option.

Should I buy SR-22 and MedPay auto insurance?

SR-22 and medical payments (MedPay) coverage may be just what you need to meet minimum requirements in your state. If you are looking for a reliable SR-22 and MedPay auto insurance company, there are many accredited companies you can choose from.
