Who's Covered under Your Auto Insurance Policy?

  • You'll need to examine many parts of your policy--the coverage selections page and the appropriate coverage parts, the definitions section, and the provisions and exclusions section. Who's covered will depend on the coverage parts you've selected, the type of loss, who was involved in the accident, and any applicable exclusions.

Who's Covered under Your Auto Insurance Policy?

  • The first thing to do is determine what type of loss you have and the coverage part to which it pertains. You may need help from your insurance agent. Next, check the Declarations Page to make sure you're within the insurance limits for that particular coverage part. Then read the entire coverage part, including the description of coverage, who is covered, and the exclusions.

  • Coverage parts
  • An auto insurance policy is made up of several coverage parts. Each coverage part has a different definition of who is or isn't covered. The number of coverage parts varies depending on the state you live in (some parts are required by law and some are optional).

slide10

Who's Covered under Your Auto Insurance Policy?

  • The definitions section
  • The definitions section of your policy defines key words used throughout the policy. Don't assume that you already know what these words mean in the context of your policy--insurance companies have specific definitions for these words as they relate to coverage. Here are some examples of terms that help determine coverage:

Who's Covered under Your Auto Insurance Policy?

  • Under medical payments coverage, any person in your car at the time of an accident is covered for medical expenses and funeral costs incurred as a result of the accident. This part also covers the medical expenses of you or any household member if you're hit by a car.

  • By contrast, collision coverage, which pays for accidental damage to your car caused by a collision, is limited to accidents when you or any household member listed on the policy is the driver. And regarding damage to someone else's property, you, a household member, or anyone using your car with your consent is covered if damage to another person's car or property results.

slide15

Who's Covered under Your Auto Insurance Policy?

  • Exclusions and provisions
  • After you've determined the relevant coverage part and who is covered, you must look at the exclusions. Each coverage part has its own specific exclusions.
  • Also, your policy contains a separate section of general provisions and exclusions (usually near the end of the policy) that can affect who is covered.

Who's Covered under Your Auto Insurance Policy?

  • In fact, it's possible you could conclude from the wording of a particular coverage part that you're covered, only to find out by the general provisions and exclusions section that you're not. For example, some provisions limit coverage to certain geographic areas.

slide17

Who's Covered under Your Auto Insurance Policy?

  • On a positive note, though, provisions can sometimes expand the definition of who's covered. One example is in the event of your death. In this case, coverage would continue until the end of the policy term for your spouse, if he or she was a resident of your household at the time of your death.
