Kristen Jordan Shamus Detroit Free Press Published 1:38 PM EDT Mar 26, 2019 You've heard of the gender wage gap, but how about a car insurance premium gender gap? It turns out, Michigan's is a doozy. Women in Michigan paid an average of $79 more per year than male drivers for the same car insurance coverage in 2018 — the second-biggest gender gap in auto insurance costs nationally.

A Cleveland entrepreneur is making it easier for shippers to be sure their products are insured when they're traveling in Mexico, which could help companies save a few dollars.

When he was securing cargo insurance for clients, he had to rely on customs brokers or carriers to seek it out from other parties. Each party tended to include a fee for the work done, which made the insurance more expensive to obtain. So he created Borderless Coverage. The company offers … [Read more...] about Cleveland company offers niche insurance for shipments to and from Mexico
Paying astronomical amounts for health insurance? Dramatic increases in the cost of health insurance due to the instability of the American marketplace have affected the consumer, especially over the past three years. Since the passage of the Affordable Healthcare Act (“ACA”) a/k/a Obamacare, the cost of individual, family, and group health insurance has steadily increased. With several states recently announcing their rates for health coverage for 2019, the trend, unfortunately, looks like it is going to continue and there are no proposed solutions at this point that appear to provide any relief to the American public. The first projections are in and most expect rate increases of up to 30% for 2019. Maryland and Virginia were the first two states to announce the rates filed by their insurance companies for 2019 and while these submissions are not final, they do serve as a good indicator of what to expect during the upcoming Open … [Read more...] about HEALTH INSURANCE PREMIUMS SET TO RISE AGAIN: NO RELIEF IN SIGHT FOR 2019
