Michigan Reaches Deal To Cover Uninsured Vehicle Accident Victims

A new Michigan Department of Insurance and Financial Services agreement ensures unlimited Personal Injury Protection (PIP) medical coverage for uninsured vehicle occupants and pedestrians who were injured in auto accidents prior to the July 2, 2020 implementation of Michigan’s new auto insurance law.

‘Michigan’s historic, bipartisan auto insurance law is protecting consumers and saving Michiganders money, and we are committed to ensuring that every Michigander receives the insurance benefits to which they are entitled,’ said Gov. Gretchen Whitmer.

‘I am pleased that DIFS was able to lead the way to find a solution that works for all involved. After this agreement, these Michiganders can rest easy that they will continue to receive the medical coverage provided under Michigan law.’

‘We are happy that this matter has been successfully resolved. As a consumer protection agency, DIFS is always focused on the best interest of Michigan consumers,’ said DIFS Director Anita Fox.
