Traumatic Brain Injury population, both military and civilian, is on the

rise Proposed change to Auto No Fault Insurance threatens brain injury continuum

of care

BRIGHTON, Mich., June 24 /PRNewswire/ -- The number of Michigan residents living with traumatic brain injury (TBI) is growing, according to the second annual report from the Michigan Department of Community Health's (MDCH) Traumatic Brain Injury Services and Prevention Council. Non-fatal hospitalized TBI cases in the state increased 19 percent, from 8,612 to 10,220 per year, between 1999 and 2005, while the number of TBI fatalities decreased about 2 percent. According to the Brain Injury Association of Michigan (BIAMI) the following issues could have a profound impact on Michigan taxpayers, the number of Michigan residents who sustain a brain injury, and the cost and availability of care and rehabilitation.

Public Cost of TBI

The current cost of TBI treatment in Michigan for Medicaid Fee For Service (FFS) patients - averages 19.7 million dollars annually, according to a report by the Michigan Public Health Institute (MPHI) and the MDCH. This cost is a significant underestimate because it does not include the more than half of all Medicaid recipients who are in managed care plans. This cost covers only a small portion of the 200,000 Michigan residents that are living with a TBI, as estimated by the Centers for Disease Control. It does not reflect the costs of patients whose TBIs were sustained auto crashes. Auto crash-related TBIs account for 32.4 percent of non-fatal hospitalized TBI cases in Michigan and treatment for those injuries is currently covered by Michigan's Auto No Fault insurance law.

Michigan Auto No Fault Insurance

The viability of Auto No Fault insurance in the state of Michigan is being threatened. Change to the unlimited coverage of Auto No Fault will mean decreased availability
