Combination of several coverages to protect the insured. For example, the comprehensive health insurance policy combines the basic hospital plan with major medical insurance to cover medical expenses (room, board, surgical, and physician expenses) and miscellaneous expenses (surgical dressings, drugs, ambulance services, blood, and operating room). Many policies have a maximum lifetime limit of $1 million for the insured and for each member of the insured's family who is a dependent resident of the insured's household. The comprehensive personal liability insurance policy covers the insured for just about any negligent act or omission that results in property damage or bodily injury to another party, subject to the exclusions of automotive liability and professional liability. The special multiperil insurance (SMP) policy provides the business owner with comprehensive property damage coverage on an all risks basis.
