Bill would change the appeals system for medical care providers of car crash victims
State Representative Julie Rogers has introduced a bill to modify the system for medical care providers to appeal denials of payment for their treatment of severely injured car crash survivors under Michigan’s 2019 auto no-fault law.
The system, called “utilization review,” dictates how medical care providers can make their appeals.
Medical care providers don’t want to get rid of utilization review, because it can cut down on the need to file lawsuits in order to get paid. But they say the current system is biased in favor of insurance companies.
The bill is the first of several expected this year to address serious problems with the 2019 auto no-fault law.
