The MHA is developing resources and hosting a members-only webinar July 16 to assist hospitals as they prepare for the impacts of upcoming changes to Michigan’s automobile no-fault insurance system, which became law in May.
Provisions of the new no-fault law, Public Act (PA) 21 of 2019, will begin going into effect July 1, 2020. It allows drivers to choose lower personal injury protection coverage options and will phase in fee schedules for providers.
The MHA contracted with outside legal counsel for a review of the hospital-specific implications of the law and also created a template for estimating the impact of PA 21 for hospitals and health systems. The MHA will use the template to collect data from all members and aggregate the financial impact of PA 21.
The MHA will hold an in-person meeting and webinar to review the analysis and financial template for government relations officers, reimbursement directors and chief financial officers from 9 to 10:30 a.m. Tuesday, July 16, at the MHA Capitol Advocacy Center in downtown Lansing. RSVP to attend in person or via webinar by contacting the MHA online or at (517) 703-8601.
Copies of the analysis and the template were sent to members the week of July 8 and are available by contacting the MHA. Members with questions about the new law or this webinar may contact Laura Appel or Adam Carlson at the MHA.
