Yes and no.

There are supplemental insurance programs available - do an internet search for "supplemental insurance."

Programs such as these will help pay that remaining percentage - in most cases, a large portion of it at least.

Adding supplemental coverage can be a good option. I have an accident supplemental that does exactly what you are asking. It will pay up to $5000 per person per year for any expenses related to an accident only that your primary carrier does not pay. This means it will pay for deductibles, co-pays (like your 20%), extra services (your plan only pays for 6 physical therapy visits and you need 10) etc. Because it only pays what your primary carrier does not it is very inexpensive ($30/month for the whole family).

If you also want coverage in the event of illness you can also by supplemental products for that as well.

Almost every homeowners policy in the United States excludes Mold coverage now days. A very, very few companies will let you purchase mold coverage for an additional premium. If you purchased the policy without mold coverage then you have no mold coverage. Suing the company for coverage that you do not have will be a waste of your time and theirs.

Bare in mind that if you sue them and lose, Due to Tort reform you will be liable for 100 percent of the Insurance Companies Attorney fees and associated legal costs as well as the cost of your own attorney.
