Good Insurance vs Bad Insurance
All insurance is a waste of money until it comes time to file a claim. The trick is in determining which insurance is good, protecting you from serious financial harm, and the bad.
When I talk about good and bad insurance I’m not talking about fraud or an insurance company acting in bad faith. What I mean when defining the quality of insurance is the value it brings in protecting against loss.
In most cases, people want the least amount of insurance possible without putting themselves at risk of a financial loss that would destroy them. Auto insurance has a minimum requirement in every state. However, some states allow you to opt out. For example, Arizona allows you to provide a bond, certificate of deposit or deposit cash with the DMV for the minimum coverage levels in lieu of actual insurance. Another example is Virginia where you can opt to register as an uninsured motorist for an annual fee as long as you have a clean driving record.
