Insurance for Your Toys
Motor Home / RV Insurance
Idaho recreational vehicle insurance covers more than motor homes, campers and travel trailers; having the right policy can also cover your passengers, valuables and other assets.
As much as you expend efforts to purchase your dream motor home, it is important to select appropriate motor home insurance policy. Legally speaking, you are required to have a certain minimum amount of coverage when you have your motor home registered. However, there are many insurance policies to ensure that your recreational vehicle obtains maximum coverage and protection.
It is important to choose a policy that incorporates the recreational value of your motor home and does not treat it as another automobile.
Whether your motor home or RV Insurance needs are travel trailer, fifth wheel, camper, or Class A Motor Home insurance, Idaho Insurance Agency offers you a variety of motor home insurance coverages.
Whether you're an enthusiast or a first-timer, having fun, being responsible and being safe is what it's all about. Being responsible includes finding the right insurance for your motorcycle.
Motorcycle insurance is a way of sharing the risks of riding between you and your insurance company. The way it works is simple. You pay a set premium to an insurance company for coverage. In return, the company promises to pay for specific financial losses that might occur during the term of the policy.
Most people rely on motorcycle insurance to protect themselves against loss in case of an accident. In many states, you must carry basic insurance to cover the cost of losses you cause to others in an accident. If the unexpected happens, insurance gives you peace of mind in knowing you are protected. At Still Creek Insurance, we have a variety of motorcycle policy options to meet your needs.
We offer boat and watercraft insurance coverage. Having the right boat insurance can help make your time on the water relaxed and worry-free! We will find you comprehensive protection that protects your investment.

Do you know why you should purchase a dental plan?
Do you know that tooth decay is the most common chronic illness in children and affects far too many adults? Tooth decay can also lead to other diseases, like heart disease.
At Idaho Insurance Agency we have several low cost dental options available to choose from that can compliment your health insurance. We offer both individual and group dental plans from several insurance carriers.
Understanding what is covered by your dental insurance can be challenging. Coverage differs from policy to policy, and from plan to plan. In order to find out what your own dental insurance covers, you may contact our agency for a review of your policy. Basic dental insurance coverage includes three categories:
1. Preventive and diagnostic dental care
Almost all dental insurance policies cover basic dental costs that are meant to prevent dental problems. That is, most dental coverage covers a large part or all the dental costs associated with basic services such as cleaning, checkups, and other dental procedures meant to prevent tooth and gum disease. This can also be the most important type of coverage, as it helps encourage patients to seek regular dental care, which can prevent later problems.
2. Basic dental care and dental procedures
In most dental plans, dental insurance also cover basic dental procedures. This may include fillings, tooth extractions, fixing chipped teeth, and other such basic procedures. What your provider considers to be basic dental care may vary widely. Most dental plans do not cover teeth whitening. Some Since providers cover a significant portion of basic dental care, you will want to select a dental care insurance provider who covers as many dental care basics and procedures as possible.
3. Major dental care
While not all dental insurance plans cover major dental care, some do cover at least a portion of these costs. Major dental care can include procedures such as dental surgery, orthodontics, denture work, and other large, expensive dental procedures. If you will require major dental care at some point in the future, you may wish to look for provider willing to pay for as large a percentage of this type of care as possible.
