05.01. PAP Part D - Coverage for Damages to Your Auto

  1. Collision losses
    • paid regardless of fault
    • if 2 or more insured vehicles are in a collision accident, only the highest deductible applies to the total loss
  2. Other than collision losses
    • used to be called comprehensive
    • many motorists purchase only OTC as it's cheaper and usually has a lower deductible
    • includes missile, fire, theft, EQ, hail, glass, animal, etc
    • any direct and accidental loss that is not due to collision and is not specifically excluded is covered by OTC
    • notes: animal collision is OTC and therefore has lower deductible applied; glass breakage resulting from a collision can be paired with collision loss, to avoid paying 2 deductibles
  3. Nonowned vehicles
    • Collision coverage applies to nonowned vehicles driven by an insured, in excess of any PD coverage available on the car
    • the coverage that applies in this case is the broadest of all collision coverages on the policy
  4. 3 reasons for Part D deductibles
    • reduce small claims
    • hold down premium
    • encourage the insured to be careful in protecting their car against damage or theft

    • includes auto rental fees or taxi fares

    • also applies to loss of income during repairs, if any
