PIP will also cover your lost wages up to a certain amount until you recover if you are disabled as a result of your injuries. Unfortunately, these benefits makes rates more costly in Flint and in the rest of Michigan. The state allows you to reduce your premium however when you coordinate your health insurance plan with your PIP.
