Multiline Insurance Policy
- An insurance policy that combines the coverage of multiple insurance policies into a single insurance policy. A wide range of risks can be covered by a multiline insurance policy, but the exposures combined in policy are often closely related; for example, a multiline insurance policy might conceivably cover both property and casualty risks. Many times, the rationale for choosing a multiline insurance policy is that for an entity exposed to multiple risks, a single policy can cost a great deal less than multiple separate policies.
