Does the recent change to the No-Fault Act strip long-term healthcare benefits from people who were seriously injured before the law changed?

Jun 8, 2022 | Car accident, General, Insurance Issues, Personal Injury Case

The Michigan Court of Appeals will soon decide if people who were seriously injured in a motor vehicle collision should be entitled to keep their long-term healthcare benefits, despite the change in Michigan’s No-Fault law that became effective in 2020. Currently, insurance companies have claimed that the new changes to the law apply to everyone, even those people who were injured and receiving long-term health care benefits long before 2020.  Rehab facilities have been going out of business because the new law limits the benefits insurance companies have to pay for their injured insureds who need extensive rehab and long-term healthcare, leaving seriously injured car crash victims in dire need of daily help with their subsistence.

Will the Court of Appeals do the right thing and decide that the insurance companies are wrong, and that motorists who were seriously before the changes to the law went into effect are entitled to keep their full long-term healthcare benefits? Stay tuned!
