Other PIP Benefits
1) Does PIP reimburse child care costs?
Yes, to a limited extent. Auto policies issued in Oregon, as part of the PIP coverage, provide a child care reimbursement credit of $25/day up to $750 00 if hospitalized at least one day. Few people take advantage of this benefit.
TIP: To start this benefit see your primary care physician. Ask for a signed and dated note justifying the need for outside child care assistance due to the crash for set period of time. Fax child care receipts to the PIP carrier. Include the PIP claim number. If needed get a new note before expiration.
TIP: Keep babysitting receipts after PIP submission. Any amount not recouped under no fault PIP coverage should be claimed against the party at fault when child care is medically required due to injury.
