Summary of Bill & What It Means to You

Legislation works to drive down Michigan’s highest-in-the-nation auto insurance rates by giving drivers a choice in the Personal Injury Protection (PIP) benefits they buy; instituting a fee schedule to control reimbursement rates for medical services; and mandating a rollback in auto insurance rates for eight years.

Chamber Position

NO POSITION ON FINAL BILL. At the beginning of the 2019-20 legislative session, the Michigan Chamber called for bold action to drive down Michigan’s exorbitant auto insurance rates. Michigan drivers currently pay auto insurance rates that are, on average, 83 percent higher than the national average. Although both the House and Senate passed bills that the Michigan Chamber could support, the legislation was amended following negotiations with the Governor. While there are many good components to the plan, we have concerns about how this bill will impact competition and choice in the marketplace over the next several years.
