First Steps

Contact the Company or Agent. If you disagree with an insurance company or insurance agent in Michigan always first contact the company and/or agent directly.
• Speak with a management representative to try to find a solution.
• Explain the problem in a calm, courteous manner.
• Provide dates, amounts, and as many related facts as you can.
If you still do not agree with the company position, ask them to provide a written response. Ask them to list the specific rules or language in the policy that allow them to deny or exclude coverage.
If you feel that your insurance agent misrepresented what your policy covers, made false statements to persuade your decision about coverage, or used other fraudulent methods, try to resolve the dispute by speaking directly with the agent. If you still do not agree with the agent’s position, ask for a written response. Ask the agent to include policy language, copies of documents you signed when you applied for insurance, or other reasons or facts, which might support the agent’s actions.
