As you know, with less than 24 hours notice, the Senate Insurance Committee yesterday voted to pass Senate Bill (SB) 248, a bill making sweeping changes to the Michigan auto no-fault system. The Senate just pass the bill 21 to 17. It will now need to go to the House.

Specifically, SB 248 would 

  • Create an auto insurance fraud prevention authority; 
  • Create an entirely new catastrophic claims system;   
  • Imposes an hour limit for in-home provided care regardless of the skill level required to safely care for the auto accident survivor;  
  • Require a 20% co-pay (up to $200 a month) on attendant care, which would be a significant financial hardship for many families;   
  • Applies a fee schedules for health care provided under the auto no-fault system.
Does nothing to ensure rate payer relief.
