Progressive Defends Online Quoting and Comparison Rating Application


MAYFIELD VILLAGE, Ohio . — The Massachusetts Association of Insurance Agents (MAIA) today issued a news release that included inaccurate or misleading information about Progressive’s Web site and its Massachusetts private passenger auto insurance product that the Progressive Group of Insurance Companies would like to correct and clarify.

“It’s unfortunate that the Massachusetts Association of Insurance Agents didn’t contact us about their concerns before issuing an inaccurate news release,” said John Barbagallo, Agency Operations, Progressive. “We are committed to providing products and services to independent agents to help them compete effectively in the market and to help them grow. Our Massachusetts product is extremely competitively priced, and, while it’s not available to independent agents in the state yet, we have committed to making it available to them next year.”
Barbagallo said: “As the largest seller of auto insurance through independent agents in the U.S., we recognize that many consumers prefer the objective, in-person counsel independent agents offer. And, we recognize that a lot of consumers are comfortable shopping for and buying insurance online. The good news is that there are choices in how to buy available to Massachusetts drivers.”
