I find this hard to believe given the antitrust implications.
State Farm is already being sued under the Sherman Antitrust Act for its activities involving repair pricing, and the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals has allowed Prestige Auto Body's claim to proceed. The opinion uses terminology that appears analogous to "fair and reasonable" pricing in the auto repair and the claims administration business, so the decision could have major implications were State Farm to lose.
