What is the definition of Assigned Risk?
An assigned risk is either a personal insurance risk or a commercial insurance risk that does not meet the underwriting criteria of a standard lines insurance company. That is it plain and simple.
Many websites offer the definition as it pertains to their offered insurance services or products such as Workers Compensation, personal auto, commercial auto, homeowners etc. The term does not apply to any specific type of policy, but to the risk type characteristics. Most states have state mandated plans, which are not state sponsored plans as you may see online in various places, to satisfy various policies that residents or companies domiciled in that state may need.

Assigned risk insurance (ARI) is a type of insurance offered in many states, primarily on the individual and commercial level, where an insurer is assigned to provide coverage to individuals or businesses who are unable to obtain it in the standard insurance market. Insurance companies must participate in state-run programs that facilitate the distribution of high-risk policies. These programs are often referred to as “assigned risk pools” or “shared markets.”
In the United States, most states have their own assigned risk plans. These plans are overseen by individual state governments or organizations like the National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC). Assigned risk plans are designed to spread out the cost of insurance coverage by allocating the burden of insuring high-risk customers across multiple insurance companies.
In general, an assigned risk plan works by allowing an insurer to purchase a certain number of high-risk policies at a predetermined rate from a pool of insurers. Insurers who choose to participate in these plans must agree to accept policyholders who may have been rejected elsewhere, including individuals or businesses with prior losses, poor driving records, or those who may not meet the requirements of their previous insurance company.
How Does Assigned Risk Insurance Work?
When an insurer is assigned to an assigned risk pool, they agree to issue insurance policies to customers that may not qualify for standard policies. The insurer then submits the applicant’s information and history to a committee of underwriters, who determine if the applicant deserves coverage. If they do not meet the requirements of the pool, they will be rejected.
Once an applicant is approved, they are then assigned a policy based on their risks and needs. Each policyholder pays a predetermined rate, regardless of their risk profile. This predetermined rate is known as the policy’s risk-based premium and is usually more expensive than traditional coverage.
Once a policyholder has been assigned a policy, they are also subject to additional requirements and restrictions which may be imposed by their assigned risk insurance plan. These could include higher deductibles, additional fees, and maximum policy limits set by the pool.
Who Qualifies for Assigned Risk Insurance?
Applicants for assigned risk insurance typically have multiple “red flags” that make them uninsurable in the standard market. This can include those who have a history of financial losses from previous accidents or those who have been charged with driving violations like reckless driving or speeding tickets.
It can also include those who are considered high-risk due to their age (teenagers), occupation (delivery drivers or taxi drivers), or geographic area (rural areas with limited access to medical services). Additionally, some states allow employers to purchase group assigned risk policies on behalf of their employees.
Benefits and Drawbacks of Assigned Risk Insurance
Assigned risk insurance has several advantages for both insurers and consumers. For insurers, they can increase their customer base while still minimizing the risk associated with providing coverage. Additionally, it could potentially bring in extra income due to higher premium rates than those offered in the standard market.
On the other hand, there are some potential drawbacks as well. Assigned risk policies may come with higher premiums and more restrictions than standard policies, resulting in a less comprehensive coverage for policyholders. Additionally, coverage limits may be lower due to the cost associated with covering a high-risk customer base, which may affect claimants’ ability to receive fair compensation from their insurers in cases of accidents or damages.
Finally, some states have passed laws regarding assigned risk pools that can impact insurers’ participation in shared oversight programs. For example, certain states have implemented legislated market equitable rules that require insurers to spread out their losses among all participants in an assigned risk pool as opposed to charging higher rates only for those that incurred losses due to risky customers or events.
Overall, while assigned risk insurance offers an alternative option for high-risk customers who otherwise would be unable to obtain coverage in the standard market, they may still incur higher rates and more restrictions than traditionally insured customers. Therefore, it is important for individuals and business owners alike to carefully consider their needs and understand all options available before buying any type of coverage.
