MHA Issues Statement Following Auto No-Fault Reform Effort

Posted on May 24, 2019

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

Brian PetersToday’s substitute version of Senate Bill 1 is an improvement over legislation that passed the House and Senate two weeks ago, though we remain concerned about how it will impact patients. We want to thank Gov. Gretchen Whitmer for working with legislative leaders to strengthen protections for drivers and patients amid a complex and divisive issue.

For Michigan hospitals and health systems, the state’s auto no-fault law has always been about making sure accident survivors receive the care and services they need following an auto accident. To that end, the bill passed today remains flawed. We are concerned about the long-term impacts of reductions in medical coverage that helps accident victims recover, and the serious cuts to medical providers in every community in this state that care for all residents, not just auto accident victims.
