Yes, the insurance company is responsible for paying attendant care service for twenty (24) hours a day as long as a physician writes a script that states there is a need for around the clock services. Under Michigan no-fault law, the insurance company is responsible for paying for the amount of hours the physician deems necessary for attendant care service. These benefits are paid to either a home care agency, a person selected by the patient, or a family member providing the services. Attendant care service benefits include, but not limited to assistance with medications, assistance with activities of daily living, monitoring, and supervision.
