Wisconsin Insurance Law Changes

There have been a couple law changes in Wisconsin this past decade which dramatically impacted insurance coverages and rates. We include a very brief summary of the two most pivotal law changes impacting Wisconsin Auto Insurance Consumers.

2009 Act 28

  • Wisconsin Drivers must have active Auto insurance coverage when operating a vehicle.
  • Wisconsin Drivers must carry valid proof of that active coverage
  • The minimum liability limits for insurance companies issuing policies in Wisconsin shall be $100,000 per person bodily injury, $300,000 per accident bodily injury and $100,000 property damage.
  • Minimum uninsured and underinsured liability limits for insurance companies issuing policies in Wisconsin shall be $100,000 per person bodily injury, $300,000.
  • Medical payments coverage has increased to the amount of at least $10,000

There are additional changes including the stacking provision.  The entire summary of that bill is here.

2011 Act 14

This Assembly bill essentially rolled back many of the changes from 2009’s Act 28 but left in place mandatory insurance coverage.  The entire summary of that bill is here.
