Representing State Farm on the call was George Avery, claims representative, and State Farm staffer Duane Willemain. The November update is the first of several expected from the insurer, which has committed to keeping ASA members informed of the pilot and its potential effect on future State Farm Select Service participants.
The pilot is operating in four states and set to expand into Chicago in December. It will increase involvement to nearly 600 Select Service collision repair facilities of the 10,300 shops participating nationwide in the State Farm Select Service program.
