Choosing the right insurance policy can be difficult and confusing. OPIC created this comparison tool to assist you with this decision. For more information on how to use the tool, visit our Policy Comparison Tool Help page.
This tool is for informational purposes only.
The results generated by this tool are for informational purposes only. Before purchasing a policy, please check with an agent or company representative to ensure the information provided by this tool is consistent with what the company is currently offering. Always refer to the actual policy language to determine the full extent of coverage under a policy.
This tool provides a summary of your policy coverages.
The results generated by the comparison tool are based on the most recent information provided to OPIC by the Texas Department of Insurance (TDI). Every effort has been made to keep the information accurate and up to date. The comparison tool generates a summary of the coverages provided by the policies you selected. This summary is not a substitute for the actual policy language. Additionally, a policy may include other coverages not listed on the comparison tool. Always refer to the actual policy language to determine the full extent of coverage under a policy.
Companies can endorse their policies.
Companies can add endorsements to your policy that alter the coverage provided by the base policy. If a company offers or requires an endorsement that affects the coverages displayed on the chart, those changes will be noted. However, since the comparison chart may not show all the coverage provided by a particular policy form, it is important for you to ask the agent or company if any endorsements will be added to your policy.
