Assessment


Overview

In accordance with MCL 500.3171, costs incurred in the administration of the Assigned Claims Plan shall be allocated fairly among insurers and self-insurers.  The assessment for benefits and administrative costs is made annually.

The overall assessment includes a prospective assessment for the following twelve months, which represents administrative expenses as well as investigation costs and legal fees not paid by servicing insurers.  This advance assessment is intended to provide adequate cash flow for the operations of the MACP until the subsequent assessment.  After this transitional year, the amount on Line B 5 will represent only the prospective assessment for the MACP’s estimated budget, plus or minus a true-up of the prior year's assessed expenses to actual expenses. The prospective assessment for 2017 was increased in anticipation of additional claims activity and litigation as a result of a recent Court of Appeals decision.



Assessable Premium for MI Assigned Claims Plan

Insurers will be assessed based on the amount of direct premiums reported to the NAIC and the Department of Insurance and Financial Services (DIFS) on the company’s annual statement. Assessments to self-insurers will be based on the number of self-insured vehicles reported to DIFS. Insurers and self-insurers do not need to report this information directly to the Michigan Assigned Claims Plan.

Snowmobile and motorcycle premiums may be deducted from your assessable premium for purposes of the assessment for the Assigned Claims Plan.
