Massachusetts Bill Would Shield Military from Predatory Insurers

December 15, 2008

A bill on Gov. Deval Patrick’s desk would require the state to toughen regulations on predatory insurers who target members of the military in Massachusetts.

The bill would require the state Commissioner of Insurance to come up with new rules and regulations to protect service members from “dishonest and predatory” insurance sales practices by declaring certain acts or practices to be false, misleading, deceptive or unfair.

The bill’s sponsor, Rep. Ron Mariano, D-Quincy, has said the bill is intended to help shield members of the military who are already under enormous pressure.
