New Supreme Court Opinion Affects Michigan Medical Bills

The Michigan Supreme Court has issued an opinion stating that medical providers no longer have a right to sue insurance companies directly in Michigan. The likely fallout from this decision is that providers will have to ask their patients to assign the right to sue, or else providers may be forced to sue their patients in order to have their bills paid (with the understanding that the patient will bring in the insurance company, who is ultimately responsible). The opinion goes into effect immediately and defendants are already trying to get cases dismissed.
