Types of Excess Insurance

In previous blog entries, McCormick Insurance Inc. explained the general meaning of excess coverage. In this blog, we’ll consider the various types of excess insurance.

Excess Insurance in Brief

Excess insurance, also called secondary insurance, pays for the remainder of an insured cost after the primary policy pays out. Although most people know about umbrella insurance, many other excess or secondary insurance types exist.

Types of Excess Insurance

Types of excess insurance include umbrella insurance and supplemental health insurance. Add excess insurance to your homeowners’ policy with a rider that protects specific items inside your Pembroke Pines, FL home or your health insurance coverage by adding vision or dental coverage.

The term excess insurance generically refers to any secondary insurance. The supplemental Medicare plans described in TV commercials fall into the category of excess insurance. So does the personal medical policy that you purchase to enhance the coverage provided by your employer.

Adding Excess Insurance

To purchase this secondary policy, you must already own a primary policy. For example, your homeowners’ policy provides liability coverage. You can add to it by raising the policy limit to its maximum; beyond that, you purchase an umbrella policy that adds to the liability coverage only.

It works the same way with medical insurance. If you purchase a hospitalization coverage policy, you can add to that primary health insurance with an excess policy that adds prescription drug coverage.
