Michigan's Auto No-fault System
As an advocate for Michigan hospitals and the patients they serve, the MHA is a strong proponent of Michigan’s auto no-fault system. Michigan's auto no-fault insurance law has ensured needed medical and rehabilitation benefits for people injured in auto accidents since 1973. Without it, auto accident victims would not be able to afford the extensive care they require after traumatic injuries.
Michigan’s auto no-fault system has been subject to numerous attacks in the Legislature in recent years. These attacks are funded and promoted by auto insurance companies and are about improving profits and stock valuation rather than protecting consumers and making meaningful reforms.
The MHA is open to participating in the political process and discussing reforms to the system, but from the perspective of Michigan hospitals, Michigan’s no-fault law is about caring for patients and maintaining victims’ access to care following a catastrophic auto accident.
