MHA Media Statement on Lame-duck Auto No-fault Bill: No Guaranteed Rate Relief, Fewer Protections for Patients

Posted on December 18, 2018

The following statement can be attributed to Brian Peters, CEO of the Michigan Health & Hospital Association.     

MHA CEO Brian Peters"Once again, the House is poised to take a vote on an auto no-fault insurance proposal that is being sold as a “grand bargain” that, upon review, provides no guaranteed or permanent rate relief for drivers and fewer protections for those injured in car accidents. This legislation appears to be an unfortunate last-minute effort to dismantle the auto no-fault system that has given many Michiganders their lives back. Real reform requires thoughtful consideration of how change will affect patient care and a solid outline of how any benefit reduction will truly result in permanent, meaningful drops in auto insurance premiums for Michigan drivers. We look forward to being at the table in 2019 to give this issue the proper time and attention it deserves."
