The reform of Michigan’s auto no-fault insurance went into effect on July 1, 2020, though the state’s legislature created the law in 2019. As of July 1, 2021, the reform fee schedule went into effect and auto insurance companies are required to reimburse providers at 55 percent of what they were paying in 2019 for services not covered by Medicare. That rate decreases to 54 percent this July and to 52.5 percent after July 1, 2023.

According to Phase IProvider Survey Results from a Study Tracking Impact of Fee Changes in No-Fault Auto Insurance Reform, a study commissioned by the Brain Injury Association of Michigan (BIAMI) that was carried out by the Michigan Public Health Institute (MPHI), impacts from this law reform abound. Among many findings, the study reveals some particular effects that impact employees as well as patients.
