First Dollar Coverage


  • A feature found in some insurance policies that provides coverage and benefits to the policyholder(s) without requiring them to pay a deductible. Found in many forms of insurance policies including health insurance, property insurance, and auto insurance, first dollar coverage generally offsets the lack of a deductible with higher insurance premiums.
