This is done to ensure that the insured does not receive more than the actual amount of the loss. By coordinating benefits, insurance companies can determine which policy is primary and which is secondary, and then coordinate the payment accordingly. This helps to avoid overpayment and ensures that the insured is not financially benefited from the same loss by multiple insurance policies.
