Auto No-fault Bill Defeated in Late Night Vote

Posted on November 03, 2017

The Michigan House of Representatives voted 45-63 to defeat a substitute version of House Bill (HB) 5013 late in the evening of Nov. 2.

HB 5013, opposed by the MHA and most other auto no-fault supporters, would have made drastic changes to Michigan’s auto no-fault insurance system, with serious implications for those injured in auto accidents and providers.

Despite minor amendments made in recent days and a substitute bill being introduced Nov. 2, the bill continued to feature personal injury protection caps, provider fee schedules and other shortcomings. Overall, it continued to fail to protect drivers and patients. The MHA remained adamantly opposed to the bill and worked to inform the public and lawmakers about the significant negative impact it would have had on Michigan residents.

In response to the House vote, MHA CEO Brian Peters issued a media statement expressing the MHA’s desire to work with legislators to achieve meaningful rate relief for drivers while protecting benefits available to those seriously injured in auto accidents.
