"Poizner’s main goal was creating more affordable insurance options. He pioneered pay-as-you-drive auto insurance in California, allowing companies to offer rates based on the number of miles people drive. Two companies have taken him up on it so far. The plans both help drivers save money and create an incentive to drive less.
Poizner was aggressive in going after insurance fraud, making nearly 3,000 arrests and achieving more than $120 million in restitution in his first three years in office. When Anthem Blue Cross filed in 2010 for a rate increase of up to 39 percent, it was Poizner’s office that organized a meticulous review of Anthem’s outrageous proposal and found major errors, forcing a double-digit reduction in the increase."
