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.
