Insurance policies come in all varieties. Insurance coverage for body parts must be one of the most unique types of insurance coverage. Celebrities taking out insurance policies on their body parts is nothing new. Hollywood icon Betty Grable had her legs insured for $1 million each during her heyday in the 1940s.
More recently, Rhianna and Heidi Klum have insured their legs for millions. Bruce Springsteen and Mariah Carey reportedly insured their vocal cords for millions, and James Bond actor Daniel Craig insured his entire body for $9.5 million due to performing most of his stunts.
Most people don't have such highly appraised body parts, but these exceptions prove the rule: If it's valuable and its loss would cause harm to one's livelihood, it can likely be insured with some type of coverage.
