PCI Supports Electronic Proof of Coverage Laws
More States to Consider Electronic Proof of Insurance Coverage Legislation
Electronic proof of insurance coverage is the wave of the future. Five states enacted legislation allowing the use of a smart phone to show proof of coverage in 2012. Two states allow for use of a smart phone to show coverage at registration or a traffic stop via regulations. With the stroke of his pen in September 2012, Gov. Jerry Brown made California the seventh state in the nation to allow drivers to show proof of insurance coverage using their smart phone. California joined Alabama, Arizona, Colorado, Idaho, Louisiana and Minnesota to update their laws and give consumers this user-friendly alternative to keeping that little piece of paper in the glove compartment.

PCI encourages other states to enact similar laws so drivers can use the latest technology to show proof of coverage. The trend is continuing and growing in 2013 as over 20 states are considering legislation or regulations to modernize insurance laws and let drivers show proof of coverage with an electronic device..
