New Michigan Laws will Come to Effect in 2020




The biggest change making Michigan laws that were passed in legislative chambers or hit the ballot box in recent years will truly find dominance in 2020. From Jan. 1, 2020, most able-bodied adults between the ages of 19-61 in the Healthy Michigan program will have to prove an average of 20 hours of workforce engagement like working or job training per week, or 80 hours per month.

The ones exempted from the law include pregnant mothers, people with disabilities, caretakers of disabled dependents, caretakers of children under age 6 and individuals who have a medical condition that results in a work limitation. The Department of Health and Human Services have sent out letters to beneficiaries explaining how to comply with the new program in December.

There will be cheaper auto insurance with Michigan’s new auto insurance law that will go into effect on July 1, 2020. Thus according to Moss & Colella, the Michigan Personal Injury Lawyer firm, Michigan residents will soon be able to change their level of personal injury protection, or PIP coverage. The law was signed in May 2019 and will welcome sweeping changes to the state’s auto no-fault policy, including allowing senior citizens and people with health insurance that covers auto-related injuries to fully opt out of PIP coverage.

There will be other four levels of coverage available with unlimited coverage, $500,000, $250,000 and a minimum $50,000 option for certain Medicaid recipients. Every level of coverage will come with a guaranteed rate reductions on PIP coverage costs beginning July 1, 2020 and it will last for eight years. The reductions will range between 10 percent for unlimited coverage and 100 percent for the one’s who opt out.
