Detroit News: 'Very Afraid' Auto Crash Survivors Fear No-fault Overhaul Will Reduce or Wipe Out Aid

Posted on June 13, 2019

A June 12 Detroit News article examines the potential impact of a new auto no-fault reform law on catastrophically injured auto accident survivors who currently rely upon Michigan's current auto no-fault system for their care. 

The article also discusses the fee schedule the new law puts in place for medical providers, which is slated to begin in July 2021. While the MHA has noted that the fee schedule ultimately approved was a "vast improvement" over fee schedules proposed in earlier versions of the auto no-fault reform bill, the association is still concerned about the impact the legislation will have on its member hospitals and the patients they serve.

As quoted in the piece, MHA Executive Vice President of Advocacy & Public Affairs Chris Mitchell said that it's simply too early to project how a change of this complexity and magnitude will ultimately affects patients and their access to healthcare services.
