It should lower rates for many consumers and provide better coverage. According to McGrath, "There is an option in the bill that allows drivers to still choose PIP-like Medical Payments coverage, but many drivers, especially seniors with Medicare, may choose to avoid that coverage because their health insurance or Medicare already covers them. FCAN also thinks the new law will reduce Florida's uninsured drivers and the fraud associated with PIP." An analysis by the Florida Office of Insurance Regulation in 2016 found that repealing PIP and replacing it with BI at $25/$50 would result in an average 9.6% savings for most Floridians. A new 2021 study says savings would average $350 per driver annually or 18%. However, some Floridians who now carry only the minimum $10,000 coverage or have no insurance, would see higher rates, but they would benefit from more coverage. FCAN is urging members, supporters, and all drivers to contact Gov. Ron Desantis today.
