Rep Schroeder votes to reform car insurance and deliver guaranteed savings to

first_img State Rep. Andrea Schroeder today joined House colleagues in approving a bipartisan plan to deliver significant car insurance savings for drivers across Michigan.The House voted to approve legislation guaranteeing lower rates by giving drivers more choice on personal injury protection coverage, reining in medical services costs for car accident victims, and combating fraudulent claims. The plan should soon be headed to the governor for her expected signature.The bipartisan solution is designed to end Michigan’s long tenure as the state with the most expensive car insurance rates in the nation.“This solution has been in the making for decades – and it’s long overdue,” said Schroeder, of Independence Township. “I’m honored to play a part in finally delivering these reforms to drivers in Oakland County and all across Michigan. These changes will crack down on fraud, provide more coverage choice, and take other steps necessary to ensure families save money on their car insurance bills.”Michigan’s costs are high largely because it’s the only state mandating unlimited lifetime health care coverage through car insurance. The bipartisan reform plan allows those currently using the coverage to keep it, and those who want it in the future to continue buying it – while providing more affordable options.The plan also requires the Michigan Department of Insurance and Financial Services to combat fraud and abuse in the system.The legislation is Senate Bill 1.##### Categories: News,Schroeder News 24May Rep.
