Insurance fee reduction begins in July

State Rep. Aaron Miller said a fee reduction announced by the Michigan Catastrophic Claims Association proves local drivers will save money because of the Legislature’s recent car-insurance reforms.

The MCCA announced Wednesday it will charge a $100 per-vehicle assessment for the year-long period beginning in July. That is down from the current $220 per vehicle, a direct result of reforms signed into law this year with Miller’s vote of support.

A Sturgis resident, Miller voted in support of landmark auto insurance reforms in May. He said that from the time he took office and well before that, sky-high car insurance rates were one of the issues he would hear about most from local residents.

According to the MCCA, the $100 per vehicle assessment will be charged only to drivers choosing to maintain unlimited lifetime personal injury protection benefits in their car insurance policies. Those who choose lower coverage limits under Michigan’s revised no-fault insurance law will avoid the fee altogether.
