MHA Featured in AP Report on Auto No-fault Legislation

Posted on June 11, 2018

The AP reported on a two-bill legislative package passed by the Michigan Senate that would reform major components of Michigan’s auto no-fault insurance law.

The legislation would allow senior citizens to opt out of purchasing personal injury protection (PIP) coverage; establish a state agency focused on auto insurance fraud; cap payments of home family-based attendant care coverage at $15 per hour once it exceeds 56 hours a week; and limit coverage for assigned claims beneficiaries to $400,000.

The MHA said it was “cautiously optimistic” about the proposal in a statement, which was quoted in the AP report. There are areas in need of improvement in the legislation, and the MHA looks forward to working with lawmakers as the package moves through the legislative process. The AP reported that the House is not expected to consider the legislation before legislators break for the summer.
