Essential Michigan Auto Insurance Information
As of July 2, 2020 Michigan drivers are able to select their preferred level of PIP Allowable Expenses ("PIP AE"), the coverage that pays for medical coverage if you are injured in an auto accident. Based on your eligibility and individual needs, you'll be able to select from the coverage options available or you may be able to waive PIP AE coverage altogether.
Here is a summary of PIP options under Michigan's new auto insurance law:
OPTIONS AVAILABLE TO EVERYONE
OPTIONS AVAILABLE TO ELIGIBLE INDIVIDUALS WIT QUALIFIED HEALTH COVERAGE (QHC), MEDICAID OR MEDICARE
- Unlimited1: This is the level you have right now. (10% average savings)
- $500,000 limit (20% average savings)
- $250,000 limit (35% average savings)
- $250,000 limit with PIP AE exclusion (100% average savings)
- $50,000 limit - Medicaid only (45% average PIP Premium savings)
- Allowable Expense Opt-out - Medicare Only (up to 100% average savings)
Remember, these options are only for PIP AE, which is just one of the coverages in your auto policy. You can also make changes to your other coverages, such as Bodily Injury and Collision.
Because Michigan's new auto insurance program will no longer be purely no-fault, it is more important than ever to have adequate Bodily Injury (BI) coverage. This coverage addresses liabilities paid by the driver at fault when an accident causes serious injuries/death. Premiums are expected to rise for this coverage as minimums are increasing, and many policyholders will increase that coverage.
- The BI minimum limits are increasing from $20,000/$40,000 to $50,000/$100,000
- A new default BI coverage is established at $250,000/$500,000
