Capping medical coverage for accident victims

Posted: Updated:
SAGINAW, MI (WNEM) -

Michigan's no-fault insurance system is unique in that it provides unlimited medical and rehabilitation benefits to accident victims.

With Michigan being one of the only states in the union that use a no-fault insurance system, legislation is being considered that would cap the amount an accident victim would receive.

Legislation is hoping to cap benefits at $1 million.

An insurance board says the annual fee that Michigan drivers pay for some personal injury costs will increase 6 percent to $186 per year starting July 1. The current cost is $175 per vehicle.

The state's no-fault insurance law requires insurance companies to pay the annual assessment to cover personal injury benefits.
