Marketplace, CBC – You’re Not Covered
From your car to your home to your vacation, MARKETPLACE reveals the loopholes in insurance policies that could leave you without coverage. MARKETPLACE meets a couple who have an accident while on vacation. They discover that a small error their insurer says they made on the travel insurance medical questionnaire meant they weren’t covered. They are left in financial ruin. Experts say the questionnaires are set up to make you fail. Through another story about a car accident, we learn that your car insurance will not cover you for the diminished value of your car after an accident, while some US insurances do provide this coverage. MARKETPLACE’s third segment looks at the fine print in home insurance policies for floods and mortgage insurance.
