FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: May 18, 2020
(LANSING, MICH) Sen. Stephanie Chang and Rep. Joe Tate will co-sponsor a virtual auto insurance town hall for the residents of the 1st Senate and 2nd House Districts with the Department of Insurance and Financial Services (DIFS) tonight at 5:30 p.m.
The live online town hall meeting is part of a series of events that will help drivers learn and ask questions about Michigan’s new auto insurance law and the choices they will need to make for policies issued or renewed after July 1, 2020.
Additional Upcoming Statewide Events
To date, nearly 1,700 people have attended DIFS’ virtual auto insurance town halls.
Michigan’s new auto insurance law lowers average statewide costs for Michigan drivers, maintains the highest coverage options in the country, and strengthens consumer protections. For policies that renew after July 1, 2020, drivers will need to determine the amount of coverage that best suits their needs. Drivers will be able to choose a level of Personal Injury Protection Medical Coverage and determine the level of Bodily Injury Coverage that best protects their family. By participating in the town hall meetings, drivers will learn about the upcoming choices and will have the opportunity to submit questions to DIFS’ insurance analysts.

DIFS continues to operate its dedicated, no-fault hotline with calls being answered Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Drivers can also call 833-ASK-DIFS (275-3437), email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or visit: www.michigan.gov/autoinsurance for more information.
