Can insurers endorse policies mid-term to add the new limits/coverages?
If the insurer’s system can accommodate such changes, they are permitted to endorse a policy mid-term with the new limits/coverage if the change is effective on or after July 2, 2020 and if requested by the insured. Please note that any such endorsement must be filed and approved by DIFS and reflect all coverage and rating changes that would otherwise be available on a separately issued policy effective on or after 7/2/2020, including but not limited to the new bodily injury limit options, PIP limit options, attendant care riders, new mini-tort limit, and all rates including the new MCCA assessment. In addition, insurers must use their approved bodily injury and PIP selection forms in the same manner as if the policy were being issued or renewed after 7/2/2020.If an insured requests a PA 21/22-compliant policy and the insurer’s system cannot accommodate a mid-term change, the insurer must offer to cancel and reissue a policy. For more information, please see Bulletin 2020-31-INS.
