Auto Insurance Costs Going Up

Auto insurance rates are going up in Michigan in July. The Michigan Catastrophic Claims Association is raising the fee it charges every driver for catastrophic health care by $22. State Representative Peter Lucido of Macomb County told Michigan News Network that means drivers are now paying $192 a year to the association, the highest the fee has ever been.

“When I see this goes above the historical high, you’ve got to ask the questions, ‘How? Why? What? When’s it going to stop?’”

Lucido is proposing a bill to force the Association to reveal how the $21 billion fund is being spent. He’s been having some difficulty finding supporters, and is hoping that will change.
