    Increased Fee on Auto Insurance to Impact Michigan Drivers

    Michigan motorists will soon pay more as the Michigan Catastrophic Claims Association, the state’s no-fault auto insurance plan, increases it’s fee from $160 to $170 per vehicle on July 1. The $10 increase is the result of growing costs to cover existing claims. “Unfortunately, this is an increase that affects all insured drivers in the state, regardless of their provider” explains Stephanie Natzke, personal lines insurance advisor with Brown & Brown.
