Rally for Auto No-Fault Fixes

On October 3, 2023, join the Michigan Brain Injury Providers Council (MBIPC), WeCan’tWait, Brain Injury Association of MI (BIAMI), Coalition Protecting Auto No-Fault (CPAN), the Interfaith Coalition, and other organizations, individuals, and survivors of automobile accidents to advocate for critical changes to Michigan’s no-fault automobile insurance law.  The rally is scheduled from 11:30 AM – 1:30 PM in front of the Michigan State Capitol.  Speakers include individuals from the survivor and provider communities, lawmakers, and other advocates.  A memorial for those who have passed since the 2019 changes in the law will also be held.

Following the passage of Public Act 21 of 2019 – Michigan’s auto no-fault reform, several challenges have arisen for automobile accident survivors and the family, friends, health care professionals, and other providers responsible for the provision of their care and treatment.  Dishearteningly, providers have had to close their doors and others have had to discharge patients, leaving crash survivors and their families unable to access needed care.  These outcomes are due to shortcomings related to the new fee schedule, limitations on family-provided attendant care, and other detrimental aspects of the law.

Fortunately, collective efforts on a legislative fix to address the above-mentioned shortcomings have begun to bear fruit.  Working hand in hand with lawmakers, advocates hope to have legislation introduced by the date of the rally.  Your support and attendance at the rally is vital to this effort.  This is an opportunity to show the Legislature and Administration that action is needed NOW and for your voices to be heard.
