Seven months after PIA publicly admonished Consumer Reports magazine for advising their readers that consumers could avoid "the bid rigging problem" by purchasing their insurance from direct writers like State Farm instead of independent agents, Consumer Reports turned to PIA for accurate information on an insurance article. In the August issue of Consumer Reports Money Advisor, PIA Senior Vice President Patricia A. Borowski observes that a consumer's premium is set based on the assumption that you aren't going to have any losses in that policy period. And if you do, "You look different. I may wish to keep insuring you, but you're going to have to pay a different price," Borowski says.

Consumer Reports contacted PIA National back in April for assistance with this article. Pat Borowski gave several extensive interviews to the article's author and Ted Besesparis worked with their editors and fact-checkers over the course of several months.
