Mortgage Refinance - Mortgage Insurance Premium?

I am working on a mortgage refinance. I am going from a 7.5% to a 5.25% rate. The issue is that because of the value of my home and what I owe on it, I have to pay $6,000 Mortgage Premium Insurance. Is this legit and/or am I paying too much? This doesn't seem like a good deal.
