"The rates and product innovations included in our filing reflect the first of many changes we expect to make as managed competition evolves," he said. "Now, instead of once a year, we can continually adjust our rates and improve our product offerings, as we develop them, just as we do in other markets. This will ensure that we are able to provide our customers with the best value possible."
Nieroda said the company's plans to expand its already strong independent agent distribution channel also will benefit consumers.
"Independent agents have always helped drivers make important insurance decisions," he said. "Now that companies will offer differing products, it is even more important to get the help of an independent agent to make the right choices."
Pending approval by the Division of Insurance, The Hanover's new auto product, Connections Auto, will provide broad liability, collision and medical payments coverage, and will help drivers save money by taking advantage of a range of account credits and discounts.
For example, The Hanover will offer deeper discounts for individuals
who insure more than one car, drive less than 7,500 miles a year, or
successfully complete a driver's education program. The company also will
offer a new discount for drivers who take an advanced driver training
program, and will offer an account credit for any driver who purchases
insurance for his or her cars as well
