What is Other Insured and when is it used?
Example: Little Johnny is coming to therapy. His Mom is the guarantor and separated from her husband, who holds Johnny’s insurance policy. In this case, Johnny would be the Patient, Mom would be the Guarantor and would receive the patient statements, and Dad would be the Other Insured party.
