Medicaid Cost Could Be On The Rise

The reform of no-fault auto insurance could result in higher Medicaid costs for Michigan.

The House plan would give drivers a choice of five levels of personal injury protection coverage from unlimited, which is currently mandated, all the way down to opting out completely. Depending on how many drivers opt for no PIP coverage, the Senate Fiscal Agency says Michigan’s share of Medicaid costs could go up over a decade by nearly 66-million dollars before the cost increase slows down.
