Uninsured Auto

Protects you if you are injured or killed by an uninsured motorist or hit-and-run driver to the extent you were not at fault.

Direct Compensation Property Damage (DCPD)

To the extent that you are not at fault in an accident with another vehicle, your own insurer will pay for damage to your vehicle and its contents. There are options to increase the deductible to save money.

Bodily Injury and Property Damage

Physical injury and damage to property as a result of a car collision.

OPCF 44

Protects you, or an eligible family member, to the same limits as your Liability coverage if you are involved in an accident where you are not at fault, with someone who carries less or no insurance, or is unidentified (e.g. a hit and run)

OPCF 20

Covers the cost of a rental vehicle while your vehicle is being repaired, if the damage or loss is caused by a peril for which you are insured.

OPCF 27

Provides physical damage coverage (subject to a deductible) to vehicles that you may operate but do not own – such as a vehicle you have rented or borrowed.

OPCF 43

Removes the insurer’s right to deduct depreciation from the value of your vehicle when settling a claim for loss or damage for which you are insured.

Keep in Mind

While the above coverages are not required, if you owe money on your vehicle your lienholder/lessor may require you to have collision and comprehensive coverage to protect their interest in the vehicle.

Your Other Vehicles

Your ATVs, motorcycles and snowmobiles have the same coverage options as your automobile.
