A few more definitions… Coverage limit- the maximum amount the insurance company will pay if you file a claim It can vary from 1,000’s – millions! The HIGHER the coverage limit, the MORE you pay. Deductible- The amount of loss a person must pay out of your own pocket before the insurance company will step in and pay the rest This also varies. It can be from $100 - $1000 The HIGHER the deductible you have, the LESS you pay in your premium (bill)
