Group plans to file appeal with Michigan Supreme Court to open auto insurance fund's books


LANSING, Michigan — A group is asking the Michigan Supreme Court to force an insurance fund that charges drivers a fee to open its books to the public.

The Coalition Protecting Auto No-Fault won its case in Ingham County only to see the state appeals court reverse this year. It will announce an appeal Wednesday.

The advocacy group says the Michigan Catastrophic Claims Association should be covered by the state Freedom of Information Act so more is known about how its annual fee is set. The MCCA is a private nonprofit created by the Legislature.

Michigan drivers pay the fund $186 per car per year for unlimited medical benefits for catastrophic injuries and rehabilitation.

The insurance industry says the MCCA's pertinent financial data is available from its website or the state insurance department.
