    “The legislation also would limit family members who provide attendant care in the home to being paid $15 an hour and restrict the hours for payment.”

    All this portion does is force the family member to continue working an outside job, and have a stranger in their home to care for the patient.

    “The new incorporated assn. would be responsible for medical claims in excess of $530,000-$545,000 for newly issued policies. The seven-member board would be appointed by the governor, and the group would be subject to public records and open meetings laws, an attempt to address criticism that the MCCA is not subject to public accountability.”

    Hmmmmm…….and they create a few well paid jobs for family members and/or friends of friends.

    The MCCA Fund is nothing more than an “insured driver self-funded reinsurance pool” to reimburse insurers on a per claim basis for amounts paid over the $530,000 threshold (attachment point) and only funded by the INSURED drivers who pay $186 per insured vehicle. UNINSURED drivers pay nothing!

    In order to reduce costs, every vehicle needs to be insured – not just one half of the registered vehicles – so, Michigan elected officials, just enforce the State’s existing mandatory financial responsibility law.
