I don't believe it was explained to you correctly. You probably received a notice of cancellation from your insurance company and someone in the office told you they were going to put you in their indemnity company. Many direct writer insurance companies have a second company that they either have a completely different name or it may have a similar name to the main company. Allstate for instance has Allstate Insurance Company and Allstate Indemnity Insurance for people who have had too many claims or tickets and no longer fit the preferred companies guidelines.

Meaning of traditional plan in insurance?

Indemnity insurance is sometimes referred to as "traditional" insurance. An indemnity policy is one that pays any health provider that provides services within the scope of coverage; there is no "network" or "panel" of providers that you have to obtain services from to get paid under your policy. FYI--Indemnity or "traditional" insurance is the most costly in both premiums and your "out of pocket" payments. Why? Because there is no network of providers with whom prices have been negotiated. This is one of the reasons that indemnity is a shrinking portion of the dental benefits market.

Can an individual have two insurance policies on the same car?

Double CoverageYes, It is not uncommon to have more than one auto insurance policy on the same vehicle. There are legitimate reasons why more than one policy might exist for the same vehicle. Under the principle of Indemnity and the color of Law. Should a loss occur, the applicable policy with the broadest scope of coverage would automatically be treated as the primary insurance policy. Coverage from the secondary policy would only invoke should the policy limits of the primary be exhausted.Bare in mind that to seek double indemnity would constitute a felony insurance fraud.Happy Motoring
