Massachusetts Has Lousy Insurance Info

November 15, 2008

The Consumer Federation of America a great Internet resource, BTW, recently released a study of all the states’ insurance websites, evaluating how useful they are for consumers to shop around for auto and home insurance.  Some of the states didn’t fare too well.   Most of these are the smaller states and I understand that they don’t have the resources but one state on the “inadequate” list of state insurance websites, was Massachusetts.  What is their excuse?
