Car Insurance Requirements
Michigan is part of a smaller group of states that requires all drivers to hold personal injury protection insurance. In addition to PIP, drivers must also have property protection insurance (PPI). Below we list the requirements for car insurance in Michigan and the minimum limits to drive.
|Type of Coverage||Limits|
|Bodily Injury Liability (BI)||$20,000 per person/ $40,000 per accident|

Personal Injury Protection
Personal injury protection is unlimited in Michigan. What this means is that your medical bills stemming from a car accident can be whatever price, and your PIP will cover it. Personal injury protection also covers your lost wages up to a certain amount if you are unable to work due to your injuries. To help with pricing, you can coordinate your health insurance with your PIP to reduce your premium. In this case, your health insurance will cover your injures while PIP will continue to pay for lost wages in the event of a disability. If you have Medicare or Medicaid, you will not be able to coordinate the two however.
