A00578 Memo:

NEW YORK STATE ASSEMBLY
MEMORANDUM IN SUPPORT OF LEGISLATION
submitted in accordance with Assembly Rule III, Sec 1(f)
 
BILL NUMBER: A578
 
SPONSOR: Magnarelli
  TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the insurance law, in relation to collision or comprehensive coverage on motor vehicles   PURPOSE: The bill would exempt vehicle glass repair shops from Section 2610 subsection (c) of the NYS Insurance Law.   SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Section 1 - Amends Section 2610 of the insurance law by providing an exemption to subsection (c). Section 2 - Effective Date.   JUSTIFICATION: Subsection (b) of Section 2610 of the Insurance Law has consistently recognized the difference between collision body repair and vehicle glass repair and replacement services. Currently, there is an exception for claims "solely involving window glass" from the ban on insurance companies suggesting or recommending certain repair shops. This is in recognition of the high-volume nature of glass repair, and the fact that the window glass repair referral process differs from the collision repair process. Therefore, this legislation extends that exemption to the disclosure requirements of subsection (c) (Chapter 278 of 2016). Vehicle glass claims are typically conducted via telephone between the insurer, the glass shop and the policy holder and consistently receives a high level of customer satisfaction. Estimates are generally unneces- sary and not provided to the customer as part of the vehicle glass claims process, enabling consumers to enjoy a transaction that is rela- tively seamless. Adding the requirements of subsection (c) to claims solely involving window glass would add unnecessary delays to the current process, create confusion for the policyholder and increase costs for insurers.   LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: New Bill.   FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None.   EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect on the same date and in the same manner as chapter 236 of the laws of 2016, takes effect.
