Will USAA car insurance pay for a car rental?

Will USAA pay for a car rental? My car was recently hit by another driver and needs extensive repairs. USAA told me it isn't totaled, but I need to get around somehow while the car is in the shop.

“It all depends on if you have rental reimbursement coverage through USAA. If you do, they should pay for the rental or reimburse you.
If you don’t have rental coverage through USAA but you weren’t at fault in the accident, you may need to get ahold of the other person’s car insurance company.
In most cases, they’ll pay for your rental car, provided they find you not at fault after their investigation.”
