Premiums are on the rise in Michigan. Find out why.


Auto insurance premiums are on the rise in Michigan, but not because of comprehensive and collision coverages—the average cost of these coverages is actually on the decline. Rather, No-Fault’s mandatory coverages are the culprit—driven principally by medical costs from Personal Injury Protection insurance that have been and are continuing to escalate at a rapid pace. In fact, these mandatory coverages now make up more than half of the average premium cost in Michigan. 


In Michigan, the average annual auto premium has increased between 2008 and 2012.
