Michigan State Rep. Wozniak: MCCA Rate Reduction Result of Car Insurance Reforms

LANSING, Michigan, Nov. 13 -- The Michigan House Republicans issued the following news release on behalf of State Rep. Doug Wozniak:
State Rep. Doug Wozniak, of Shelby Township, today said the fee reduction announced by the Michigan Catastrophic Claims Association is a positive indication Macomb County drivers will save significant money through the state's recent car insurance reforms.
The MCCA announced it will charge a $100 per vehicle assessment for the year-long period beginning July 2, 2020. That is down from the current $220 per vehicle - a 55-percent savings and a direct result of reforms supported by Wozniak.
"This is the first of many significant savings Macomb County drivers will see following the Legislature's approval of car insurance reforms," Wozniak said. "Time after time, drivers were expecting to see an increase to the MCCA assessment. It symbolized everything that was wrong with Michigan's no-fault car insurance system. The MCCA lowering its per-vehicle assessment to an almost 20-year low symbolizes how we're moving forward as a state. More work can and will be done, but for now, Michigan drivers should enjoy this substantial win to their car insurance policies."
The MCCA said the $100 per vehicle assessment -- the lowest rate since 2003 -- will be charged to drivers choosing to maintain unlimited lifetime personal injury protection benefits in their car insurance policies. Wozniak said those who choose alternative coverage levels under Michigan's revised no-fault insurance law will see even greater savings.
The current $220 fee is assessed on all insured vehicles.
