The short answer is that Med Pay is a form of insurance that only pays for medical expenses resulting from injuries sustained in accident. In many states, Med Pay is incredibly important to those injured in auto accidents, but because Kentucky is what we call a PIP (Personal Injury Protection) state Med Pay is less important in car wreck litigation. The reason being that PIP will cover everything that Med Pay covers, but it will also cover lost wages.
PIP stands for Personal Injury Protection, insurance companies offer PIP with all auto insurance polices sold in Kentucky. The purpose of PIP coverage is to pay the insured's bills and expenses if hurt in a car wreck regardless of fault.
