Effective Date can be the current day or a day in the future, when you want the Insurance options to be available in Domico.
Termination Date will populate automatically.
Rate is the amount the tenant will be paying each month.
Coverage Limit is a description of that tier. That field is set up for a dollar amount, so we suggest using a format similar to one pictured above.

a. You can elect to automatically charge the lowest tier at move-in. If the customer has their own insurance, or they decline it, you can remove it before completing the move-in.
b. If you pay a monthly transaction fee, you can choose to have it deducted from the Total Monthly Premiums on the Insurance Transmittal Report.
c. If a customer goes 30 days without paying for the insurance, Domico will remove the charge and remove them from insurance. You can add the insurance back at any time.
