The coverages can be used in conjunction with a health insurance plan or if you do not have health coverage.

Liability coverage – Liability insurance protects you from damage or injury you incur to other people or property in an accident. This insurance protects YOU against other people’s claims. It does not cover damage sustained by your vehicle in an accident.
Coverage consists of three different limits, per person bodily injury, per accident bodily injury, and a property damage limit. As an example, you may have values of 25/50/25 that translate to $25,000 in coverage for each person’s injuries, a limit of $50,000 in injury protection per accident, and $25,000 of coverage for damaged propery.
Liability insurance covers things such as funeral expenses, medical expenses, legal defense fees, structural damage and pain and suffering. The amount of liability coverage you purchase is your choice, but buy as large an amount as possible.
Collision coverages – This coverage will pay to fix damage to your A5 resulting from a collision with a stationary object or other vehicle. You have to pay a deductible and then insurance will cover the remainder.

Collision coverage makes up a good portion of your premium, so analyze the benefit of dropping coverage from lower value vehicles.

UM/UIM Coverage – This coverage protects you and your vehicle when other motorists do not carry enough liability coverage. It can pay for medical payments for you and your occupants and also any damage incurred to your 2015 Audi A5.

Comprehensive or Other Than Collision – Comprehensive insurance coverage covers damage caused by mother nature, theft, vandalism and other events. You first have to pay a deductible then your comprehensive coverage will pay.
Comprehensive can pay for things like fire damage, hitting a bird, a tree branch falling on your vehicle, damage from flooding and rock chips in glass. The highest amount you can receive from a comprehensive claim is the market value of your vehicle, so if it’s not worth much more than your deductible consider dropping full coverage.
