Minimum coverage car insurance policies only meet Kansas state law's minimum coverage requirements. Unlike full coverage car insurance, minimum coverage doesn't include comprehensive and collision coverage, which covers the cost of damage to your car in scenarios where another driver isn't liable for the damage.
While a minimum coverage auto insurance policy is cheaper, lower coverage limits may put you at risk of insufficient protection in the event of a car accident.

Minimum auto insurance requirements in Kansas
Kansas is a no-fault state thus requiring drivers to carry personal injury protection (PIP) in addition to liability insurance coverage.
- PIP reimburses bodily injury you might face after an accident, regardless of who was at fault.
- Liability insurance coverage pays out for damages caused to other drivers and their property in an accident where you are at fault.
Kansas' PIP is different than in other states, however, in that rather than just one payout that can be used in anyway the driver sees fit, it is broken down into different limits for different types of benefits.
Below you can see how the minimum auto insurance coverage requirements in Kansas are split:
- $25,000 per person/$50,000 per accident of bodily injury liability
- $25,000 of property damage liability insurance
- $25,000 per person/$50,000 per accident of uninsured motorist insurance
For personal injury protection (PIP), Kansas uses the following payout limits:
- $4,500 per person for medical costs
- $900 per month for 1 year for disability and loss of income
- $25 per day for in-home services
- $2,000 for funeral, cremation or burial expenses
- $4,500 for rehabilitation
The total coverage is $11,925, but the payout can only allocate up to the stated limits for different benefits. If an X-Ray for example costs $5,000, you can only use $4,500 of the medical cost benefit to pay for applicable expenses.

Methodology: How we conducted the study
We collected auto insurance quotes for Kansas cities from seven car insurance companies. Our sample driver was a:
- 30-year-old male
- Driving a 2015 Honda Civic EX
The driver was profiled as having no credit history, making him equivalent to a driver with below-fair to poor credit, according to our data source, Quadrant Information Services.
Our sample driver held full coverage car insurance with the following limits:
|Coverage type||Study limits|
|Bodily liability||$50,000 per person/$100,000 per accident|
|Property damage||$25,000 per accident|
|Uninsured/underinsured motorist bodily injury||$50,000 per person/$100,000 per accident|
|Comprehensive and collision||$500 deductible|
For a minimum coverage policy, our sample driver had coverage equivalent to the minimum Kansas state requirements.
Average premiums are for illustrative purposes, as individual quotes will differ based on driving history, ZIP codes, vehicle type, coverage limits chosen and other factors.
