If you have two autos that carry full coverage do you have to add your husband to this policy?

If you want your husband to be insured Yes. If you do not then there will be no coverage when he has an accident. He could also be ticketed for driving without insurance.

You should, particularly if he has any access at all to the vehicles and/or drives them, even on an occasional basis.

The reason behind this is that you pay a premium for the drivers in your household. If you're paying a premium for only yourself, and your husband uses the vehicles, you're not allowing the insurance company to rate you correctly. This could be called misrepresentation, particularly if your carrier has asked you to give them information on all the drivers in your household.

But...if your husband has a good driving record, and is free of accidents, you probably won't see much of a rate change, if any at all. If he has a bad record, you might want to consider having him made an excluded driver on your policy. That way, you're square with the insurance company and your rates won't reflect his record. But beware: An excluded driver means just that, and if he ever drives one of your vehicles and has an accident, there is absolutely no coverage. You can imagine what this can do to your finances if you're not careful.

Secondary medical insurance is a second level of insurance coverage. Under most circumstances, the two policies are independent of each other. One policy may pay for a service while the other may not. The primary policy must pay first, then the secondary. The choice of which policy is primary or secondary is established by a shared rule between insurance companies. It is not the policy holder's choice.Examples of Primary/Secondary coverage: A husband and wife both work and carry the medical insurance offered by their respective employers. The husband adds his wife to his policy. The wife adds her husband to her policy. Under most circumstances, the husband's plan would be his primary policy and his wife's plan would be his secondary policy. In like manner, the wife's plan would be her primary policy and her husband's plan would be her secondary policy.

Your broker can help you determine how much insurance to carry in your HO-6 policy, based on what might be covered in the association's master insurance policy.Ask your board or your management company to send you a coverage page from the master policy, then you and your broker can determine the coverage you need.

In the past it was common for people to be double covered for health insurance. However, now with the cost of medical insurance increasing so much in recent years and the decrease in the portion that is paid by employers, it is no longer reasonable to carry double coverage. In reality the second policy will only cover the 20% not paid by the primary policy and this is in exchange for the full premium.

The short answer is yes. Some police carry 9mm. semi-autos.
