What Does Everyone Have to Say About "Managed Competition"?

For years, the state of Massachusetts controlled auto insurance carriers to produce higher revenues.  However, the system has changed directions, and state officials put a “managed competition” program into place in order to lower car insurance premiums and rates. This program has been in existence for about two years now, and has received both praise and criticism from the public.

Many advocates predict that the introduction of this new system will cause many new carriers to enter  the industry. Opponents believe that the “managed competition” system would create discrimination of select drivers.  They also believe that the cheaper premiums would effect the state insurance agents negatively by reducing their commission.  These mixed reviews have not fully happened because the  system is still quite young. 

There are currently a few companies that provide auto insurance for Massachusetts drivers, and are offering competitive and cheap premiums and rates for their consumers.  As the years go by with this new system, more opinions will form, and hopefully the auto insurance industry will be both beneficial for both consumers and state agents.

Plymouth Rock enhances their MYLES discount program

Plymouth Rock announced new discounts available through their “savings pass” also knows as the MYLES (Make Your Life Easier Services(SM)) program.  In addition to current discounts on auto-related purchases from select retail partners which may total hundreds of dollars for some customers, they have added discounts on Thule car racks and driver training taken at Driven Advanced Drivers Training.  As MSNBC.com reports, Plymouth Rock also is rewarding their customers for driving less.

Newcomers versus legacy carriers in Massachusetts auto insurance marketplace

Competition has certainly changed the playing field in the world of Massachusetts Auto Insurance.  Although insurance agents continue to provide value to consumers, the increased competition is not desirable for Massachusetts insurance agents because it will change the playing field dramatically for Massachusetts Auto Insurance.  One situation with a group of Massachusetts Auto Insurance agents and Massachusetts Insurance Commissioner Nonnie S. Burnes, alleges preferential treatment for newcomers to the Massachusetts Auto Insurance marketplace.
