The Michigan House Select Committee on Reducing Car Insurance rates has a launched a campaign titled “Reduce MI Rates Now” to gather stories from constituents and share information about the committee’s efforts to reform auto no-fault. It is crucial that physicians and accident survivors offer their perspective during this phase, while all approaches to reform are considered.
Please visit the reducemiratesnow.com and select “Tell your story” at the top of the page. In your personal message, you're encouraged you to remind the committee that while you’re tired of being charged outlandish rates, you strongly oppose any reform that would result in life-saving benefits being slashed. Tell the committee that insurance companies must be held responsible for offering fair and affordable rates, and express support for bringing transparency to the Michigan Catastrophic Claims Association.
Conversely, if you feel that the coverage you are receiving for the cost of your policy is fair, share that too. It is absolutely imperative that every effort is made to ensure Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan’s perspective – pushing limited protection coverage or returning to a tort system – is framed as what it is: insurance companies offering sham policies with no guarantee for rate reduction. That’s a good deal for insurance companies and a bad deal for everyone else.
The committee is seeking constituent feedback, and now is the time. Please encourage your colleagues to do the same.
