I'd say check for spark, and fuel pressure.

The crank sensor and the fuel pump are right up there on the hit parade on those.

Crank it for about five seconds, let off the key. When it stops spinning, immediately hit the key again and crank it over. The computer has a method of firing the car even when it isn't getting a good signal from the cam sensor. If this method fails, start by replacing cam and crank sensors.

The only reason someone would want insurance is if they want to pay someone elses bills or want someone else to pay their bills.
