Parts of your insurance policy

Understanding the coverages of insurance aids in choosing which coverages you need at the best deductibles and correct limits. The terms used in a policy can be difficult to understand and reading a policy is terribly boring.

Insurance for medical payments

Med pay and PIP coverage provide coverage for expenses for things like hospital visits, pain medications, X-ray expenses and ambulance fees. They are often used to cover expenses not covered by your health insurance plan or if there is no health insurance coverage. They cover all vehicle occupants as well as any family member struck as a pedestrian. PIP coverage is only offered in select states and gives slightly broader coverage than med pay

Comprehensive coverage (or Other than Collision)

This coverage pays to fix your vehicle from damage from a wide range of events other than collision. You need to pay your deductible first and the remainder of the damage will be paid by comprehensive coverage.

Comprehensive insurance covers things like a tree branch falling on your vehicle, damage from a tornado or hurricane, hitting a bird, theft and a broken windshield. The most you can receive from a comprehensive claim is the cash value of the vehicle, so if your deductible is as high as the vehicle’s value consider dropping full coverage.

Uninsured Motorist or Underinsured Motorist insurance

This gives you protection from other drivers when they are uninsured or don’t have enough coverage. Covered claims include injuries to you and your family and also any damage incurred to your Lexus GS 300.

Since many drivers only purchase the least amount of liability that is required, it only takes a small accident to exceed their coverage. This is the reason having UM/UIM coverage is a good idea.

Coverage for collisions

This covers damage to your GS 300 resulting from colliding with another vehicle or an object, but not an animal. A deductible applies then your collision coverage will kick in.

Collision coverage protects against claims like hitting a parking meter, hitting a mailbox, colliding with another moving vehicle and sideswiping another vehicle. Collision coverage makes up a good portion of your premium, so analyze the benefit of dropping coverage from vehicles that are 8 years or older. You can also raise the deductible to bring the cost down.

Liability coverages

Liability insurance protects you from damage that occurs to other people or property that is your fault. This coverage protects you against claims from other people. Liability doesn’t cover your own vehicle damage or injuries.

It consists of three limits, bodily injury per person, bodily injury per accident and property damage. You commonly see policy limits of 25/50/25 which means $25,000 in coverage for each person’s injuries, a per accident bodily injury limit of $50,000, and a limit of $25,000 paid for damaged property.

Liability coverage protects against things like medical services, structural damage and repair bills for other people’s vehicles. How much coverage you buy is your choice, but it’s cheap coverage so purchase as high a limit as you can afford.
