Insuranceopedia explains Assigned Risk Plan
Assigned risk plans are mandated by states to cover those who are denied insurance by standard insurance companies. It can apply, for example, to a motorist who has amassed records that have been very costly to their insurer or a worker in a very high-risk job.
While insurers can be compelled to participate in this plan, they will charge higher rates than those they offer for their regular policies.
