“If you have full glass coverage, you will be able to submit a claim under your comprehensive insurance.
Any glass on your vehicle is covered by your policy, even if it isn’t your windshield. If you have full glass coverage with a deductible, you will be required to pay your deductible before your insurance would cover anything.
This sometimes could be your comprehensive deductible or a specified amount, like $50. As you have a zero dollar deductible, you can submit the claim without having to pay any other costs out of pocket.”
