Rep. Miller votes to lower car insurance premiums

State Rep. Aaron Miller last week voted in favor of a measure to help bring lower car insurance prices to residents and families in Southwest Michigan.

He joined House legislators in approving a plan to reform Michigan’s no-fault system. The plan guarantees lower rates for all drivers in Michigan, reducing what currently is the highest average car insurance premium in the nation.

The bill, Miller said, offers personal injury coverage options, fights fraud and abuse, and addresses medical costs.

Michigan’s costs are high largely because it’s the only state mandating unlimited lifetime health care coverage through car insurance. The House 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 legislation now advances to the Senate for consideration.

    Baloney!
    This bill allows insurance corporations to sell policies with reduced medical coverage lowering only that portion of an auto premium for five years. Purchase one of these slightly less costly plans and get injured in an accident and you will have to pay for medical costs. Ask yourself how affordable is your current health insurance and how much does it cover? Knowing that current administrations are looking to gut the few health coverage subsidies, how does is this a change for the better for the common working family?
    And meanwhile insurance corporations continue to rake in the cash.
