A rider is a modification to an insurance policy that typically adds a new coverage or higher coverage in return for higher premiums.
For example, you might add a rider to your life insurance policy to provide coverage for your spouse, or a rider to your homeowner's policy to provide additional liability insurance for a specific event. Dental care and prescription insurance are typical riders on health insurance policies.
