What Is The Michigan Assigned Claims Plan?

Michigan created the Michigan Assigned Claims program in 1973 to provide help to people injured in an accident involving a motor vehicle, when there is no other automobile insurance available. The Michigan Secretary of State managed the Assigned Claims program until December 17, 2012, when it transferred to the Michigan Automobile Insurance Placement Facility.

Who Is Eligible?

Applications for personal injury protection benefits can be made by car accident injury person, accidentally injured, arising out of the ownership, operation, maintenance, or use of a motor vehicle as a motor vehicle. Applications for benefits may also be made if the injured person was a driver or passenger of a motorcycle if the accident involved a motor vehicle (not another motorcycle).

What Benefits Are Payable By The Michigan Assigned Claims Plan?

  1. Reasonable charges for medical care, recovery, and rehabilitation in accordance with the Michigan No-Fault Statute.
  2. Wage loss
  3. Household Replacement Services
  4. Attendant Care

Due to the 2019 no fault reform, medical benefits are limited to a maximum of $250,000.  

Can I receive no-fault benefits if I don’t have a no-fault policy and the other car was uninsured?

In Michigan over 20% of the drivers are uninsured so purchasing uninsured motorist coverage is a necessary insurance coverage option. Some areas like Detroit where insurance rates are historically higher, the percentage is higher. Our law firm has been recommending that Michigan consumers purchase at least $250,000 per person/$500,000 per accident uninsured motorist coverage.  The reason to purchase uninsured motorist coverage is obvious:

  1. If you are involved in a car accident, you have a 20% chance of being involved in an accident with an Uninsured motorist; and
  2. If you are an occupant of a vehicle with no insurance coverage the uninsured motorist coverage applies and helps pay victims injured in a Michigan Car Accident.

Michigan law requires injured persons to first look to their own auto insurance policy or the auto policy of a household family member for the payment of Michigan no-fault benefits.

In Michigan, if you don’t have auto insurance, which there is 20% for no insurance, the Michigan Assigned Claims Plan is available to pay no fault benefits to the victim injured in a car accident.

As a result of the tragic 2019 no fault reform, a greater number of people will be forced to apply for personal protection insurance benefits through the Michigan Assigned Claims Plan. Now, car accident injury victims must turn to the Michigan Assigned Claims Plan, the medical expense coverage will be limited to $250,000. Due to the medical cap many people will be left with insufficient coverage and will look to the at fault driver for payment of excess medical expenses that the Michigan Assigned Claims Plan does not pay due to the limited coverage.
