Why do I need uninsured motorist if I have health insurance?

I have health insurance with a $2,000 deductible. With that in place, why would I ever need uninsured motorist coverage?

“While your question is valid, your uninsured motorist coverage provides more protection than your health insurance does.
Not only does this type of car insurance cover your injuries without you having to pay copays or the deductible, but it can also provide money for pain and suffering, lost wages, and more. So even if you have great health insurance, it’s still a good idea to have uninsured motorist coverage on your policy.”
