John Prosser, CPAN Board Member, discusses the Michigan Supreme Court ruling on the MCCA Transparency Lawsuit with Mitch Album.The Michigan Supreme Court issued an order vacating a recent decision by Michigan Court of Appeals, which held that the Michigan Catastrophic Claims Association (MCCA) was not subject to the Michigan Freedom of Information Act (FOIA). The FOIA statute applies to all entities that are considered to be a “public body.” The Supreme Court remanded the case to the Court of Appeals instructing that Court to specifically address the issue of whether the MCCA is a “public body.” The Supreme Court also instructed the Court of Appeals to address whether a statute passed by the legislature years ago that purported to exempt the MCCA from the reach of FOIA was constitutionally enacted.
11.11.14 CPAN President, John Cornack, and Board of Director, John Prosser, are guests on the Michael Patrick Sheils show. The topic of discussion is HB 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.
