Media Statement: CPAN Proposal on Auto No-fault

Posted on May 16, 2017

With regard to reports of a new CPAN proposal on auto no-fault, the MHA has a board-endorsed position on this issue – and that position does not support fee schedules for healthcare providers, which could jeopardize access to needed treatment and recovery services for accident victims. Our priority has been and is to protect patients. As recently as December, we supported efforts to create an anti-fraud authority and better manage attendant care costs. However, we have not had an opportunity to review the specific language being proposed nor is this proposal in the form of legislation at this time. At which time there is legislation to debate, we will review its impact on providers and their patients and communities and develop a formal position on any such proposal. Until then, the MHA continues to urge the Legislature to protect our state’s no-fault system that has been twice protected by voters and that ensures our critically injured residents get the accident recovery services they need.
