Steve Gursten in Detroit Metro Times on Duggan’s D-Insurance

Detroit Mayor Mike recently Duggan voiced frustrations with the opposition to his D-Insurance plan to lower Detroit’s high auto insurance rates, issuing some of his most pointed comments on the issue to date speaking before the Detroit chapter of the National Association of Black Journalists at the Hotel St. Regis. Steven M. Gursten, an attorney at Michigan Auto Law in Farmington Hills, wrote to the Metro Times to critique the plan, suggesting a No Fault medical provider fee schedule as the answer to lowering Michigan’s auto insurance rates while preserving the existing protections of our No Fault benefits – for Detroit drivers and car accident victims.

Said Gursten:

“Importantly, a No Fault medical-provider fee schedule would accomplish two essential goals: (1) It would meaningfully lower the price of auto insurance for Detroiters by reducing the amounts that hospitals and doctors charge to No Fault auto insurance companies for treating Michigan auto accident victims; and (2) It would accomplish the first goal without capping (as the D-Insurance plan proposes), eliminating, restricting, or otherwise limiting the critical legal protections and No Fault auto insurance medical benefits that our No Fault system currently provides to Michigan auto accident victims.”
