Michigan UP Town Hall Meetings to Discuss Consequences of the Pending Auto No-Fault LegislationThe proposed legislation HB 4612 would significantly alter Michigan’s current no-fault insurance system and would cap injury benefits at $1 million for accident victims. This legislation passed out of the House Insurance Committee and is now awaiting a vote on the House floor.
Research shows this cap would shift tens of millions of dollars onto taxpayers each year. The bill also requires government-set price controls on what private healthcare providers charge for treating auto accident victims. The Michigan Health and Hospital Association estimates this will cost state hospital systems an average of $10 million annually. While these reforms will provide cost savings for insurance companies, the bill does little to require a reduction in costs for consumers.
The town hall meetings will act as educational forums and discussions about the impacts that this proposed legislation will have on Michigan drivers, auto accident victims, and healthcare providers. Come learn more…
