Mich. bill would give motorists choice in medical coverage
(2008-04-28)
(wgvu) - LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Some state lawmakers and community leaders
are getting behind legislation to give motorists a choice of
medical coverage when buying auto insurance.
The insurance industry says motorists could save up to 16
percent on their auto premiums if they're allowed to select capped
health benefits for accident injuries.
Michigan is the only state to require unlimited personal injury
protection benefits, which policyholders pay for through a $123
annual fee per vehicle.
Legislation introduced last week in the state Senate would let
motorists select medical coverage worth between $50,000 and
$400,000, or retain unlimited coverage.
A group of lawmakers and others announced support for the bill
at a Monday morning news conference in Detroit.
