Michigan to educate drivers about big insurance changes

By  | 

LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Michigan's top insurance regulator says the state is committed to educating drivers about a new law that will let motorists save money by foregoing unlimited medical coverage for crash injuries.

The state Department of Insurance and Financial Services has created a consumer hotline (833-ASK-DIFS (275-3437)) and email address (AutoInsurance@michigan.gov) to respond to questions and complaints. There also is a website with information about the changes that take effect in July.

Department director Anita Fox detailed the resources, including forms drivers will fill out when they buy a policy, on Tuesday. The law is the most significant rewrite of Michigan's no-fault insurance in decades.
