Diana Farrington (left) testified in support of her bill that expands state payment to health care providers for sexual assault exams.State Rep. Sue Allor of Wolverine today testified in the House Michigan Families, Children and Seniors Committee in support of her bill that expands state payment to health care providers for sexual assault exams.The cost of providing these services to victims of sexual assaults has increased and many health care providers have become financially constrained because of the costs. To ensure these services are continued, Allor said the state must provide additional funding to health care providers, partners or subcontractors. The testing should have approval from the Crime Victims Compensation Board.“After sexual assault, a medical exam can check for injuries, even those you may not be able to see,” said Allor. “With medical attention and testing, costs shouldn’t keep victims from getting the care they need.”Every 98 seconds, a person experiences sexual assault in the United States. Sexual assault affects hundreds of thousands of Americans each year. One out of every six American women has been the victim of an attempted or completed rape in her lifetime and 3 percent of men are victims of attempted or completed rape in their lifetime.The Crime Victims Compensation Board provides reimbursement expenses to innocent crime victims who suffer personal injury.
