Muskegon’s board of governors helps no-fault auto reform

MUSKEGON COUNTY, Mich. – Muskegon County commissioners backed a resolution that would ask state leaders to consider changes to the 2021 No-Fault Auto Reform Act.

As part of the No-Fault Auto Reform Act, the state legislature reduced reimbursement to 55% for all medical services not already covered under the Medicare Act — which included home care services and affected approximately 18,000 Michiganders who were on second-generation medical services supported by their no-fault – fault policies.

On Tuesday, Muskegon County commissioners voted in favor of a sustainable fee cap for home health care providers with the intention of safeguarding benefits for vehicle accident survivors who receive long-term care at home.

These benefits have already been paid by the survivors under the Unlimited PIP Auto Insurance policy, which is paid by the Michigan Catastrophic Claims Association.

The passage of this resolution makes Muskegon County one of over thirty counties that have requested changes to the No-Fault Auto Reform Act, including Berrien, Oceana, Kalamazoo and Mecoast counties.
