Assigned Risk Plan

1. An insurance plan for drivers who otherwise would not be able to obtain automobile insurance. Each state in the U.S. requires insurers to offer automobile assigned risk insurance, at a higher premium than traditional insurance. States assign uninsurable drivers to insurance companies, which must provide coverage. This helps people who, by law, must obtain automobile insurance, but are unable to do so because of poor driving records or other reasons. Critics contend it drives up premiums for all policyholders.

2. In workers' compensation, an insurance plan for workers who perform labor considered so hazardous that an insurance company ordinarily would not insure the worker's place of employment. As with automobiles, states assign uninsurable workers to insurance companies, which must provide coverage, often at higher premiums.
