1/26/2004: Text of Amicus Brief Supporting HMO Liability in U.S. Supreme Court Case (Health Administration Responsibility Project)
Excerpt: The best way to satisfy explicit Congressional intent while adhering to the strict language of the law is to define the scope of ERISA as applying to the insurance coverage paid for by the plan, not the medical service paid for by the insurer.... The insurer's failure to pay for or provide specific medical service should subject the insurer to state contract and tort remedies, since ERISA provides no federal jurisdiction over such non-plan entities.
