Some of the changes to the Florida Personal Injury Protection Law include the following:
- You must be seen by a physician within 14 days of the accident to receive any benefits.
- You must be diagnosed with an “Emergency Medical Condition” to receive the full $10,000 in PIP insurance benefits.
- If an “Emergency Medical Condition” is not diagnosed, then the amount that you are eligible to receive is decreased to $2,500.
- After an “Emergency Medical Condition” is diagnosed, you must receive a referral from the diagnosing physician, for further treatment.
Remember, this only affects your Personal Injury Protection Insurance coverage. It doesn’t change how your entire Car Insurance Policy works.
