Is high-deductible insurance a good idea?

The insurance deductible is purely a cost-saving measure for consumers. It’s all about home much you want to pay if there is a loss. And how much you want to pay for your premiums.

High-deductible insurance creates lower monthly payments but a higher cost for consumers if they need to make a claim. For example, let’s say you’re a very safe driver and feel like you won’t have an accident. You can raise your deductible to $1000 or more and you’re monthly (or semi-annually) payments will go down by a fair amount. But maybe you feel like $1000 is too much for you to handle if you do have an accident. Well, then you’ll want to pay a little bit more on your premium to avoid such a large payment if there is a loss.

It’s all up to you. That’s the great thing. And what’s better, you can discuss the options with your Provident Agent to determine the best possible payment/deductible combination.
