Health Coverage and the New Michigan Auto Insurance Reform Law

Under the new Michigan Auto Insurance Reform Law, the health care plan you have could affect your coverage options.

Starting July 2020, you’ll be able to choose the amount of coverage on your auto policy to help pay for medical expenses if an insured is injured in an auto accident. This is called your “limit” for Personal Injury Protection Allowable Expenses* (PIP AE). In Michigan, your PIP AE options will depend on the type of health care coverage you already have. You may be able to choose a new, lower PIP AE limit, and that may lower your auto insurance costs.
