Legislation includes both collision repair and auto glass. Does not require use of OEM parts included in recommendations.
The New Hampshire House of Representatives on Thursday concurred with Senate amendments to a bill prohibiting insurance companies from knowingly fail to pay a claims based upon OEM collision repair procedures. The bill keeps New Hampshire’s existing regulations governing the specification of non-OEM parts in place. It also provides repairers with the option of using a third-party paint and materials guide if they do not agree with the insurer’s estimated charges.
The bill was supported by the Automotive Service Association. Last
