CPAN's Analysis of HB 5854 (Changes to the Assigned Claims Plan)
On September 23, 2014, Representative Peter Lund introduced House Bill 5854, which makes sweeping and destructive changes to the operation of the Michigan Auto No-Fault Assigned Claims Plan. This bill frustrates the objective of the Assigned Claims Plan by making it much more difficult for otherwise eligible victims to recover no-fault benefits. The Bill erects numerous technical barriers and procedural obstacles that claimants must strictly satisfy or lose their right to receive no-fault PIP benefits. Likewise, medical providers will lose the right to recover reimbursement for necessary medical treatment that was rendered to such claimants if there is non-compliance with the new technicalities created by this Bill. The highlights of this proposed legislation are discussed in this analysis.
