Rep. Eisen votes to reform broken car insurance system
RELEASE|May 24, 2019

House approves bipartisan no-fault solution

State Rep. Gary Eisen today approved a bipartisan plan to deliver significant car insurance rate relief for drivers across Michigan.

The House overwhelmingly voted to approve legislation guaranteeing lower rates by giving drivers more choice on personal injury protection coverage, stopping price gouging on medical services for car accident victims, and combating fraudulent claims to help lower costs. The plan should soon head to the governor for her expected signature.

“Michigan drivers have had enough of paying into a broken and expensive system that is overdue for changes,” said Eisen, of St. Clair Township. “I am committed to fixing this rigged system and helping Michigan drivers with rate relief.”

The bipartisan solution is designed to end Michigan’s long tenure as the state with the most expensive car insurance rates in the nation.

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.

Senate Bill 1 now advances to the Senate for further consideration.
