Progressive sets rates for auto glass recalibration to reimburse shops
“Declaring them “the reasonable and necessary amount for calibration services,” Progressive on June 25 announced new amounts it would reimburse automotive glass shops for static and dynamic calibrations.
The memo obtained by Collision Hub and posted to Facebook June 30 said Progressive would pay $500 for glass repairs requiring both a static and dynamic calibration, $275 for a dynamic calibration alone and $300 for an individual static calibration.
The prices would take effect July 1. “Accurate invoices which do not exceed the updated pricing structure will be paid promptly after submission,” Progressive wrote.
Progressive as of early Thursday evening did not respond to an inquiry Wednesday about how it calculated these “reasonable and necessary” prices or what it would do for work sublet by glass shops.”

Progressive has stated that it still wants to allow it’s policyholders to choose the auto glass shop of their preference. However, they make it clear that shops which wish to exceed these “reasonably set prices” should decline the job. Progressive also requires shops to maintain records of recalibrations for their policyholders for a minimum of three years.
