Detroit Red Wings Player May Lose Care Due to Changes In Michigan’s Law

WXYZ-TV in Detroit is reporting that former Detroit Red Wings player Vladimir Konstantinov may lose his care due to changes in Michigan’s laws that limit the amount of reimbursement he can receive.

Six days after winning the Stanley Cup, the limousine Konstantinov was riding in as he celebrated crashed. The accident put Konstantinov in a coma for two months.  His injuries ended his hockey career and he now requires care 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

The change in Michigan’s law has slashed the reimbursement for long-term care by 45%, putting in jeopardy the care that Konstantinov, and thousands of others, need to survive.
