El-Sayed calls for auto and health insurance reform in new op-ed

February 25, 2022 Crain's Detroit Business

Abdul El-Sayed, Towsley Foundation Policymaker in Residence, urges lawmakers to stop making auto insurance double as health insurance in a recent op-ed for Crain's Business Detroit.

"As Michiganders know all too well, we pay more for auto insurance than anyone else in the country. That's because in Michigan, our auto insurance does double duty: it's both auto insurance and health insurance," El-Sayed wrote. "That means that every time you pay that auto insurance premium, you're paying for the health insurance that comes with it, too."
