Michigan bill would give motorists choice in medical coverage
AP/Chicago Tribune, April 29, 2008
Some Michigan lawmakers are supporting legislation that would let motorists save up to 16 percent on their auto insurance by choosing less medical coverage. The legislation would let motorists choose medical coverage worth between $50,000 and $400,000, or continue paying for unlimited coverage through the Michigan Catastrophic Claims Association. The bill is opposed by a group of health providers, trial lawyers, labor unions and consumer advocates known as the Coalition Protecting Auto No-Fault, which says Michigan residents would end up footing the bill when motorists with too little medical coverage are hurt in serious accidents.
