LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Michigan's top insurance regulator says the state is committed to educating drivers about a new law that will let motorists save money by foregoing unlimited medical coverage for crash injuries.

The state Department of Insurance and Financial Services has created a consumer hotline and email address to respond to questions and complaints.

There also is a website with information about the changes, which take effect in July.

Department director Anita Fox detailed the resources, including forms drivers will fill out when they buy a policy, on Tuesday.

The law is the most significant rewrite of Michigan's no-fault insurance in decades.
