What is GEICO PIP option A?
Personal injury protection (PIP) helps pay for covered medical expenses caused by an auto accident. PIP can be used whether you’re at fault for an accident or not. It can also be extended to certain family members that live in your home. Some states require you carry PIP on your auto policy.
Will GEICO cover my car if someone else driving?
GEICO covers someone else driving your car, as long as they only drive it occasionally and you give them permission to do so. This is known as permissive use. As long as your roommate only drives 12 times a year or less, he’s covered under your policy.
Should PIP be primary or secondary?
PIP is primary coverage. PIP is considered primary coverage after a car crash; your health insurance becomes secondary coverage. If, for example, you have Personal Injury Protection coverage of $50,000, your health insurance coverage wouldn’t kick in until you’d exhausted the full $50,000 of PIP.
