Health insurance plans have three main components: the premium, the deductible and the co-insurance. The premium is the money that you pay each month to be covered by the health plan.

The deductible is the amount of money you have to pay out of pocket each year, before your insurance company will begin picking up part of the bill. The co-insurance is the portion of the bill that you are required to cover after the deductible has been reached. These companies together make up your actual cost of health insurance.

Term life is a kind of life insurance that remains in force for the amount of time (the "term") stated in the policy. At the end of the term, coverage of the policy ends.

Cash value can be likened to a "savings account" within the policy into which a small part of every premium dollar is deposited. Unlike this, the premium for a term policy is tied more directly to the actual cost of providing the death protection. Therefore, term insurance is generally less costly than whole life insurance. purchased for a certain time period with a specific premium cost a+ ^

Why does your insurance go up if you have an accident or get a traffic ticket?

Auto insurance offers some protection against risk. The company agrees to take on your risk in exchange for your premiums, the money you pay them. There has to be an actual risk covered by the company, or there can be no legal insurance contract. Even if you don't have an accident for an entire covered period, the company was covering your risk so you obviously would get no money back for that period. The money you paid goes to the payment of claims made by other policy holders. If you get into an accident, some companies will ask you to increase what you pay in premiums because the accident [or ticket] probably indicates that the company is taking on a little more risk (there may be a higher probability that you will make a future claim) by covering you. Remember, you are paying them to accept risk on your behalf.
