IGA Issues Statement on NCOIL Legislation
July 16, 2010

The IGA has released a beacon to its members about the current NCOIL legislation. In the IGA beacon bulletin, IGA executive director Mike Russo says, “In brief ... Belron claims that the model for anti steering legislation would hurt consumers. And we quote, ‘If a consumer indicates the name of a repair facility, the insurer would no longer have the ability to explain the features and benefits of the insurance policy. Consumers would be justifiably outraged if they were blind-sided with an invoice from a repair facility, charging the difference between what the insurance company paid and what the repair facility charged.’ Fortunately, the reality is that the courts are ruling that insurance companies are being held accountable for the differences (not the consumers), in accordance with the terms of the policies that they sell.”
