In 22 states, InvestigateTV found that someone whose auto insurance lapsed because he was deployed overseas received a higher estimate from Geico on a six-month premium than someone who had insurance.
In North Carolina, for a six-month policy, Geico quoted the civilian $527. The company quoted the recently-deployed soldier $682. That’s a $155 difference.
In some states, like Louisiana or Tennessee, the price of insurance skyrocketed by 45% for someone who had returned from deployment.
The only state that did not have an insurance estimate tool available was Michigan.
