Car Insurance Requirements

Car insurance in Michigan is unique in what is required of its drivers. Michigan is one of the 12 "no-fault" states where personal injury protection (PIP) is mandated. What sets Michigan apart from those other states, is that its PIP is unlimited. Michigan also requires drivers to hold personal property insurance (PPI). These large minimums make Michigan one of the most expensive states in the country for car insurance. Below you can see all the required limits by the state of Michigan. 

Type of CoverageLimits
Bodily Injury Liability (BI) $20,000 per person/ $40,000 per accident
Property Damage Liability (PD) $10,000 per accident
Personal Injury Protection (PIP) Unlimited
Property Protection Insurance (PPI) Up to $1 million 

Personal Injury Protection 

PIP ensures that if you are injured in a car accident you will be able to pay your medical bills, no matter if you or the other driver was at-fault. There is no limit as to how much you can get from PIP in Michigan. Your medical bills can be as high as $1 million, and they would still be covered under Michigan PIP. As well, if you are injured in a car accident, and cannot work, PIP will pay for your lost salary and compensation up to 3 years. The drawbacks of unlimited PIP is that it makes rates more expensive. You have the option in Michigan to link your health insurance plan with your PIP in order to lower costs however. This way, your health plan would cover all of your injuries while PIP will cover lost wages. Unfortunately, you won't be able to link the two if your health care provider is Medicaid or Medicare.
