Michigan no-fault auto insurance reform took effect on July 2, 2020.
What is personal injury projection coverage?
Generally speaking, personal injury projection coverage is a component of auto insurance that covers medical expenses of people injured in auto accidents regardless of who caused the crash. Up until now, Michigan required drivers to have PIP coverage with unlimited, lifetime medical coverage, guaranteeing many health and recovery benefits including reimbursement for lost wages, in-home nursing care and specialized medical treatments.
What are my new coverage options?
As part of the no fault auto insurance reform law that went into effect on July 2, lawmakers created five PIP coverage options, enabling drivers to keep unlimited PIP or choose less coverage.
