Access to Quality Emergency Care Act.

Show your support by emailing your legislators.
Contact your lawmaker and other key legislators here. Please take a minute to send him or her an email saying you support this common sense reform.


It is important for your voice to be heard in Lansing. HB 4354 will help limit liability for physicians practicing in an emergency situation.

This common sense bill is now moving through the Michigan House of Representatives. The goal is to hold down insurance costs by reducing inappropriate lawsuits and making it easier to defend cases that do go to court under certain circumstances.

This bill does not provide blanket immunity. But it will help us increase access to specialists for our patients, and provide an incentive for physicians to locate here in Michigan, ensuring those who need emergency care will be able to get it for years to come.

We’ve included a few points in the draft letter below. Please take a minute to review it, personalize it with your own experiences, and then send it to lawmakers.
