Arizona homeowners have a lot of decisions to make when shopping for a homeowners insurance policy, including how much their deductible should be. The deductible is the total dollar amount that the insured contributes toward a covered loss. The deductible level you choose can change how much you pay in insurance premiums.
When picking a deductible, remember that the higher your deductible is, the lower your insurance rates will be. This means that those seeking lower insurance costs will want to consider a higher homeowners deductible. Remember that your homeowners deductible should not be set at an amount that you would have difficulty paying in the event of a loss.

Does homeowners insurance cover fires in Arizona?
Fire damage is covered by every standard home insurance policy in the state of Arizona. If a fire destroyed your home, your homeowners insurance company would cover the damage to your property up to your policy limits. The prevalence of wildfires in Arizona underlines the importance of sufficient homeowners insurance: 8% of Arizona households are considered at risk of suffering damage from a wildfire, and 165,356 acres were burned in the state in 2018.*
In addition to paying for damages — up to your policy limits — your home insurance policy may cover additional living expenses if your home is deemed unlivable. Fire-related damages that will not be covered by your home insurance provider is intentional damage (arson) or damage to a vacant home. It's worth contacting your insurance company to confirm it covers wildfire-related damage, especially if you live in a high-risk area.
