With the police report in hand, and it showing whose fault the accident was, contact the arrested drivers insurance company and make application for a claim.

Chances are though, that the other person doesn't even have insurance, or a driver's license. Why else would someone hit and then run? To avoid being caught without the license or insurance. If that driver has no insurance, then about the only thing you can do then is file a suit in court for restitution. You might be awarded the costs of repairs, but the defendant may not have the means to pay what is owed to you. Sending that person to jail only compounds your issue.

Can the insurance company make you pay for accident without police report?

Yes, of course. If you are liable for the damages you are required by law to cover the losses. Having a police report or not having a police report has no bearing on your liability and resulting financial responsibilities. Although most minor accidents do not merit a police report, the insurance companies recommend an accident report be filed whenever possible to document the occurrence and protect the drivers and the company from individuals who may later try to shirk their financial responsibilities. If you have insurance then your insurance company will cover the loss for you up to your policy limits. If you are uninsured then you are required to pay the damages yourself.
