“Medical payments coverage is optional in the state of Ohio.
Bodily injury liability will cover injuries to others in an at-fault accident, while medical payments will provide you or your passengers with coverage for medical expenses.
If you have healthcare, you may not need medical payments coverage. However, if you have a high deductible or lack certain coverages, it’s recommended that you add medical payments coverage.
It can help cover any costs you may owe after your health insurance pays out its portion. Medical payments also covers things like professional nursing services and funeral expenses.
If you decide to add medical payments coverage to your car insurance, you may have to do some comparison shopping to find the best rate.
