Michigan Chapter Pens Letter to Governor Urging Action on No-Fault Auto Reform Issue, Urges Members to Contact Legislators
This week, the HCAOA Michigan Chapter sent a letter to Governor Gretchen Whitmer on behalf of home care providers who care for hundreds of Michigan residents, including children and adults who require continuous care for injuries sustained in car accidents, who have had their care jeopardized due to new auto insurance reform that went into effect on July 2, 2021. Home care organizations have been providing care to these clients for many years, however now reimbursement from insurance companies has been slashed by 45 percent.
According to the letter, the Chapter asks that the governor “and the Michigan Legislature act quickly to remedy this situation because many accident victims have already lost access to care. Legislation should be introduced to fix this problem so that these vulnerable Michiganders can continue to live as independently as possible. We believe this solution can be implemented while maintaining the objectives set forth in the auto insurance reform.”
The Chapter is also encouraging members to contact their legislators or attend open legislator events to discuss this important issue. Click here for a fact sheet on the issue. Here is a schedule of upcoming legislator events:
