The MHA is a Proud Advocate for Auto No-fault
As an advocate for Michigan hospitals and the patients they serve, the MHA is a strong proponent of Michigan’s auto no-fault system. Michigan's auto no-fault insurance law has ensured needed medical and rehabilitation benefits for people injured in auto accidents since 1973. Without it, auto accident victims would not be able to afford the extensive care they require after traumatic injuries.
Michigan’s auto no-fault system has been subject to numerous attacks in the Legislature in recent years. The MHA is open to participating in the political process and discussing reforms to the system. However, from the perspective of Michigan hospitals, Michigan’s no-fault law is about caring for patients so the MHA maintains a strong stance when it comes to ensuring victims’ access to care following a catastrophic auto accident.
In May 2019, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer signed a bill making sweeping changes to Michigan’s auto no-fault insurance law. Read the MHA's statement on the legislation.
Following the implementation of the reforms, the MHA has actively worked to inform drivers about how to make fact-based decisions when it comes to how best to protect themselves and their loves ones if injured in an auto accident through the Big Changes Ahead campaign.
