The payment amount, or rate, for attendant care services in Michigan is usually determined by an analysis of the market rate in the area where the services are being provided. Rates range significantly based upon the level of care, the skill level of the attendant care provider, and the nature and extent of the injuries being cared for by the provider. Insurance adjusters will tell you that they determine the fair amount of the payment, but this is not true. It is not up to the adjuster to determine the proper payment amount.
If you are curious as to whether you are receiving the proper payment amount for attendant care services, you should contact our No-Fault Insurance lawyers immediately. We will discuss the factors regarding the care you are providing and give you our opinion as to whether it is an appropriate payment amount. We regularly file lawsuits against insurance companies who are significantly underpaying family members for providing these services. Quite often, we are able to obtain the underpayments in the past and secure the proper hourly rate into the future.
