I.I.I. Glossary

ORDINANCE OR LAW COVERAGE- Endorsement to a property policy, including homeowners, that pays for the extra expense of rebuilding to comply with ordinances or laws, often building codes, that did not exist when the building was originally built.

ACCIDENT AND HEALTH INSURANCE- Coverage for accidental injury, accidental death, and related health expenses. Benefits will pay for preventative services, medical expenses and catastrophic care, with limits.
