Michigan No Fault Benefits For Medical Expenses
No Fault Medical Expense Benefits Explained
The Michigan No-Fault Act allows auto accident victims to receive lifetime payment of medical bills “for reasonably necessary products, services and accommodations” required for the victim’s care, recovery or rehabilitation. Allowable medical expenses include doctor bills, hospital bills, medication, medical equipment and rehabilitation expenses. Certain criteria must be met before coverage will be allowed for treatments which are considered experimental. Just because an injured subject believes an experimental treatment is necessary doesn’t mean that it will be viewed the same way by the insurance company or the court.
A person who is seriously injured, such as a quadriplegic or paraplegic, may be entitled to additional benefits including modifications to a home or van for wheelchair accessibility.
Michigan Attendant Care Benefits
Attendant care is also covered within the medical expense guidelines of the No Fault Act, and is also a life time benefit. Attendant care services for the injured may include help with: personal hygiene, administering medications, wheelchair transfers, wound care and even supervision. Attendant care is reimbursed at an hourly rate that is negotiated between an experienced auto accident attorney and the insurance company.
