Compare Car Insurance Rates in Kansas
Below are all seven Kansas auto insurers included in our study. We've displayed minimum coverage insurance quotes from each company from lowest to highest annual rate.
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 cover 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 requirements for auto insurance coverage in Kansas
Kansas requires drivers to have a minimum amount of liability coverage in their auto insurance policies.
|Bodily injury (BI)||$25,000 per person and $50,000 per accident|
|Property damage (PD)||$25,000 per accident|
|Uninsured motorist bodily injury (UMBI)||$25,000 per person and $50,000 per accident|
It should be noted that even though these are the lowest coverage limits you can get, we'd recommend increasing the limits to match how much your assets are worth. Your insurer will only cover you up to the stated limits, which could leave you financially vulnerable after an expensive car accident.
