When to eliminate full coverage

There is no clear-cut formula for phasing out full coverage on your policy, but there is a general school of thought. If the annual cost of your full coverage insurance is more than around 10% of the vehicle's replacement cost less your deductible, then you may need to consider dropping full coverage.

For example, let's pretend your Toyota Camry Hybrid replacement cost is $3,000 and you have $1,000 deductibles. If your vehicle is destroyed, you would only receive $2,000 after you pay the deductible. If you are paying in excess of $200 a year for your policy with full coverage, the it may be a good time to stop paying for full coverage.

There are some cases where eliminating full coverage is not advised. If you haven't satisfied your loan, you must maintain physical damage coverage as part of the loan requirements. Also, if you cannot afford to purchase a different vehicle in the even your car is totaled, you should keep full coverage on your policy.

Insurance coverages and their meanings

Having a good grasp of your policy can be of help when determining appropriate coverage for your vehicles. The coverage terms in a policy can be difficult to understand and even agents have difficulty translating policy wording.

Medical expense coverage

Coverage for medical payments and/or PIP kick in for short-term medical expenses such as nursing services, doctor visits, EMT expenses, pain medications and ambulance fees. They can be used in conjunction with a health insurance program or if you lack health insurance entirely. It covers all vehicle occupants in addition to being hit by a car walking across the street. Personal injury protection coverage is only offered in select states and may carry a deductible

Collision coverage

Collision insurance will pay to fix damage to your Camry Hybrid resulting from a collision with a stationary object or other vehicle. You have to pay a deductible then your collision coverage will kick in.

Collision can pay for things like hitting a mailbox, colliding with another moving vehicle, driving through your garage door, crashing into a ditch and sideswiping another vehicle. This coverage can be expensive, so consider removing coverage from vehicles that are older. You can also raise the deductible on your Camry Hybrid in order to get cheaper collision rates.

Uninsured or underinsured coverage

Your UM/UIM coverage gives you protection when other motorists are uninsured or don't have enough coverage. Covered losses include injuries to you and your family and also any damage incurred to your Toyota Camry Hybrid.

Because many people only carry the minimum required liability limits (30/60/25), it only takes a small accident to exceed their coverage. That's why carrying high Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage should not be overlooked. Frequently these limits do not exceed the liability coverage limits.

Comprehensive protection

This coverage covers damage from a wide range of events other than collision. You need to pay your deductible first then your comprehensive coverage will pay.

Comprehensive coverage pays for claims such as damage from flooding, damage from getting keyed, a tree branch falling on your vehicle and hitting a deer. The highest amount you'll receive from a claim is the market value of your vehicle, so if it's not worth much more than your deductible it's probably time to drop comprehensive insurance.

Liability auto insurance

Liability coverage will cover injuries or damage you cause to a person or their property. Liability coverage has three limits: bodily injury for each person, bodily injury for the entire accident, and a limit for property damage. You commonly see liability limits of 30/60/25 which stand for a limit of $30,000 per injured person, a total of $60,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and $25,000 of coverage for damaged property. Some companies may use a combined single limit or CSL that pays claims from the same limit and claims can be made without the split limit restrictions.

Liability coverage protects against claims like emergency aid, pain and suffering, court costs and repair bills for other people's vehicles. The amount of liability coverage you purchase is a personal decision, but buy as large an amount as possible. Texas state law requires minimum liability limits of 30/60/25 but you should consider buying more liability than the minimum.

The illustration below demonstrates why buying minimum limits may not be enough coverage.

A conclusion for your insurance search

When buying insurance coverage, it's a bad idea to reduce needed coverages to save money. There have been many cases where consumers will sacrifice uninsured motorist or liability limits only to regret that it was a big mistake. Your strategy should be to buy enough coverage for the lowest price and still be able to protect your assets.

Insureds leave their current company for any number of reasons including delays in paying claims, poor customer service, not issuing a premium refund or delays in responding to claim requests. It doesn't matter why you want to switch finding a great new company is actually quite simple.
