Learn about insurance coverages for a 2006 Ford Expedition

Having a good grasp of a insurance policy can help you determine which coverages you need and proper limits and deductibles. The coverage terms in a policy can be ambiguous and nobody wants to actually read their policy.

Medical payments and PIP coverage

Medical payments and Personal Injury Protection insurance kick in for bills like hospital visits, surgery, EMT expenses, pain medications and rehabilitation expenses. They are often used in conjunction with a health insurance policy or if there is no health insurance coverage. They cover not only the driver but also the vehicle occupants and will also cover any family member struck as a pedestrian. PIP coverage is only offered in select states and gives slightly broader coverage than med pay

Auto liability

This coverage can cover injuries or damage you cause to other’s property or people. It protects you against other people’s claims. Liability doesn’t cover your injuries or vehicle damage.

Liability coverage has three limits: bodily injury for each person, bodily injury for the entire accident, and a limit for property damage. As an example, you may have values of 100/300/100 that means you have a limit of $100,000 per injured person, a per accident bodily injury limit of $300,000, and $100,000 of coverage for damaged propery.

Liability can pay for claims such as repair costs for stationary objects, attorney fees, court costs and medical expenses. The amount of liability coverage you purchase is your choice, but it’s cheap coverage so purchase as large an amount as possible.

UM/UIM (Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist) coverage

Your UM/UIM coverage protects you and your vehicle when the “other guys” are uninsured or don’t have enough coverage. It can pay for medical payments for you and your occupants and damage to your Ford Expedition.

Because many people have only the minimum liability required by law, their limits can quickly be used up. So UM/UIM coverage should not be overlooked.

Comprehensive auto coverage

This coverage covers damage that is not covered by collision coverage. You first have to pay a deductible then your comprehensive coverage will pay.

Comprehensive insurance covers claims such as falling objects, hitting a bird, damage from a tornado or hurricane and damage from getting keyed. The most you’ll receive from a claim is the ACV or actual cash value, so if the vehicle is not worth much consider removing comprehensive coverage.

Collision coverage

Collision insurance pays to fix your vehicle from damage resulting from a collision with a stationary object or other vehicle. You first must pay a deductible and then insurance will cover the remainder.

Collision can pay for claims such as driving through your garage door, backing into a parked car, sustaining damage from a pot hole and hitting a parking meter. Collision coverage makes up a good portion of your premium, so you might think about dropping it from lower value vehicles. It’s also possible to choose a higher deductible to get cheaper collision coverage.

More quotes mean more savings

We just covered a lot of ways to lower your 2006 Ford Expedition insurance rates. The key concept to understand is the more times you quote, the better chance you’ll have of finding lower rates. You may be surprised to find that the lowest premiums are with a small mutual company.

When trying to cut insurance costs, never sacrifice coverage to reduce premiums. There have been many cases where someone dropped collision coverage only to regret at claim time that their decision to reduce coverage ended up costing them more. Your focus should be to find the BEST coverage at the best price while still protecting your assets.

Discount insurance can be sourced both online and also from your neighborhood agents, so you should be comparing quotes from both to have the best rate selection. Some insurance coverage companies may not provide online price quotes and many times these small, regional companies only sell through independent insurance agents.
