PIP Lives

By resounding votes in both the State House and State Senate, a rewrite of No Fault Auto Insurance was sent to the Governor less than a day after many presumed it would be dead. The mandatory no fault insurance expired on Monday, the new legislation will make it a requirement for drivers beginning January first. Bill sponsor Ellyn Bogdanoff of Ft. Lauderdale says the new system will do more to crack down on fraud.

We have a provision in there that limits payment for doctor-owned clinics, which is huge. Because a lot of the fraud takes place in these fly-by-night clinics that kind of pop up on street corners,” Bogdanoff said. “So theres a lot of good provisions in the bill and plus, weve kind of cleaned up a lot of the abuses and weve tried to streamline the process to reduce cost within the system. So its not everything that I think we could have done to eliminate fraud. You will never completely eliminate fraud in any insurance system but weve gone a long way to reduce it.

If you are uncertain if you are still carrying No Fault Personal Injury Protection Insurance, you should call your agent.
