Smart people seem to be hinting that usage-based insurance is the future. What’s the bottom line on usage-based insurance? Use technology to charge people what they should be charged. The closer the connection between the insurance company and the customer, the better the product.

It won’t be long until usage-based insurance and telemetrics invade other insurance sectors. It’s been years since I saved tons of money by installing Progressive’s little black box in my car. They get to make money off of me, and I get lower prices. Homeowners and other lines of insurance will leverage all of the technology on our phones and in our houses to do the same thing Progressive did with auto insurance.
