Advocates rally for no-fault reform in Lansing
Hundreds of people rallied in Lansing Tuesday in support of Senate bills that could restore access to care for thousands of catastrophically injured car crash victims.
One of the speakers at the rally was Jen Brown. Her mother had to move to a nursing home after she was severely injured in a car crash. That's because of the 2019 auto no fault law's dramatic cuts to fees for home care aides. Brown said those who helped pass the law made a terrible mistake.
"I speak to each and every one of them who participated in this unethical and immoral decision. You harmed and decimated the lives of families of people you were charged with protecting."
The Insurance Alliance of Michigan says the bills would take the state backwards to what it claims was massive overcharging by providers. The Alliance says the bills will increase rates at a time when residents can least afford it.
