    • C.

      Bodily Insurance Liability

    Correct Answer
    A. Medical Payment Coverage
    Explanation
    Medical Payment Coverage is an insurance policy that covers the medical expenses and healthcare costs of individuals who were injured in the insured's automobile, including the insured themselves. This coverage is specifically designed to provide financial assistance for medical treatments and services related to injuries sustained in a car accident. It helps to alleviate the burden of medical expenses and ensures that necessary healthcare is accessible to those involved in the accident.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    What is: Insurance that protects against financial loss, within limits, when the insured damages the property of others. This primarily applies to vehicles but could also include street signs, lampposts, and buildings.

    • A.

      Collision

    • B.

      Comprehensive

    • C.

      Property Damage Liability

    Correct Answer
    C. Property Damage Liability
    Explanation
    Property Damage Liability is the correct answer because it refers to insurance that covers the insured when they cause damage to someone else's property. This type of insurance is commonly associated with vehicles, but it can also include other types of property such as street signs, lampposts, and buildings. Collision insurance covers damages to the insured's own vehicle in the event of a collision, while comprehensive insurance covers damages to the insured's vehicle caused by events other than collisions, such as theft or natural disasters. However, neither of these options specifically addresses the protection against financial loss when damaging the property of others, making Property Damage Liability the most appropriate choice.

    Uninsured Motorist's protection is the correct answer because it refers to insurance that covers the cost of injuries to the insured and their family in specific situations such as a "hit and run" accident or an accident with someone who does not have insurance. It also covers cases where the other driver does not have sufficient coverage for the damage caused to the insured. This type of insurance provides financial protection and ensures that the insured is not left with the burden of expenses in such situations.

    B. Assigned Risk Pool
    Explanation
    A "No Fault" Insurance is a program in which an insured can collect medical expenses, lost wages, and injury costs from their insurance company, regardless of who is at fault for the accident. This type of insurance is designed to expedite the payment for damages until the process of determining fault is complete. On the other hand, an Assigned Risk Pool is a program that provides insurance coverage to individuals who are unable to obtain insurance in the regular market due to high-risk factors. Collision refers to insurance coverage that pays for damages to the insured's vehicle in the event of a collision with another vehicle or object.

    • A.

      Comprehensive

    • B.

      Collision

    • C.

      Assigned Risk Pool

    Correct Answer
    C. Assigned Risk Pool
    Explanation
    The given passage describes a situation where individuals with a poor driving record or accident history are unable to obtain insurance. However, they can still obtain insurance through a state program called the assigned risk pool. This program requires insurance companies to accept these high-risk drivers and provide them with insurance, although at high rates. Therefore, the correct answer is Assigned Risk Pool.

    Correct Answer
    Policy Holder, policyholder
    Explanation
    A policyholder is the individual or entity that owns an insurance policy. They are the ones who purchase the insurance coverage and are entitled to the benefits and protection provided by the insurance company. The policy holder is responsible for paying the premiums and complying with the terms and conditions of the policy.

    Rate this question:

    Correct Answer
    Insurance policy, policy
    Explanation
    An insurance policy is a contract between an insurance company and the policyholder. It outlines the terms and conditions of the insurance coverage, including the types of risks covered, the premium to be paid, and the duration of the coverage. The policyholder agrees to pay the premium, while the insurance company agrees to provide financial compensation in case of covered losses or damages. Therefore, an insurance policy is the correct answer as it accurately describes the contractual agreement between the insurance company and the policyholder.

This is a common feature in insurance policies, designed to share the financial burden between the insured and the insurer. By having a deductible, insurance companies can reduce the number of small claims and discourage unnecessary or frivolous claims. The deductible amount varies depending on the insurance policy and can be set at a fixed dollar amount or a percentage of the total claim.

    Rate this question:

The premium can be paid in various ways, such as monthly, quarterly, or annually, and it is determined based on factors like the type of insurance, coverage limits, deductibles, and the insured individual's risk profile. The premium is essential for the insurance company to cover the costs of claims, administrative expenses, and profit.
