Best Answer

Basic First Party benefits are for Auto Insurance. They cover major medical, incidental loss, Funeral Expence and accidental death. You can get auto insurance with just liability only, but you would then have no coverage for any major medical bills that could arise out of an accident or any funeral expenses and such. I hope this has helped somewhat. If you have any other questions regarding any kind of propery and casualty insurance (such as Homeowners insurance, Auto, General liabilty etc.) let me know.

Who pays the medical bills if you are involved in an auto accident where the at fault party has insurance and i was a passenger in car that was hit?

Most states require auto owners to maintain "no-fault" coverage; it is sometimes referred to as "Personal Injury Protection". It is a first-party coverage, which means that one maintains it for their own benefit. No-fault coverage pays a percentage of the medical expenses and lost wages sustained by an injured part in an auto collision, and benefits are payable irrespective of fault. That is, your own coverage pays benefits even if you caused the collision. Depending upon the state in which the policy is issues, a deductible of some amount may be allowed. A deductible is the amount which the insured is responsible for paying before insurance benefits are triggered. A similar coverage, which pays over and above no-fault is called "medical payments" coverage. An additional premium is charged for this because it is an optional coverage. It also is a first-party coverage which pays irrespective of fault.

When applying for insurance what does two-party mean?

You may have misconstrued the words. With respect to property and casualty insurance, there are the concepts of first-party coverage and third-party coverage. First-party coverage is that which you obtain to protect your pwn property. An example of this would be the collision coverage on your car, which pays to repair the car irrespective of whether you or another person damages it. Conversely, an example of third-party coverage woukd be liability coverage. This pays for the damages of a third party (property damage or bodily injury) if you are found legally liable for the damages. All of that said, if what you really mean is that someone used the term "two-party" to you in applying for insurance, my best assessment would be that you and another person are insured under the same policy. Since you posped this question in the health insurance category, it may mean that you and a spouse are insured under the same policy, which would not be uncommon. If you can provide further facts, I'd be pleased to further clarify.
