Survivors of catastrophic auto crashes and the people who love and care for them rallied again at the Capitol Wednesday in a last-ditch effort to urge lawmakers to take up legislation that would prevent certain portions of the state’s no-fault auto reform from taking effect this week.
As part of Michigan’s new auto insurance law, the next portion of which is going into effect on Friday, there will be a new set of medical fee schedules for medical services that aren’t already covered under our federal medicare law.
The Senate passed SB 28 late Wednesday afternoon, effectively approving the creation of a $25,000,000 “post-acute auto injury provider relief fund” within the state Department of Treasury. The funds are meant to be dispersed to Michigan care providers who can prove financial losses due to the impending changes.
