Text of Sixth Circuit Opinion: Michigan Tax on Paid Claims Is Not Preempted by ERISA for Self-Insured Health Plans (PDF)
U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit Link to more items from this source
Aug. 5, 2014
"SIIA fails to grasp that ERISA guarantees uniformity only with regard to the 'administration of employee benefit plans.' Neither the Act's definition of 'paid claims' nor its reporting and record-keeping requirements conflict with the administrator's 'standard procedures to guide processing of claims and disbursement of benefits.' ... . To the extent that the Act requires reporting and record-keeping, it is only to guarantee that the carriers pay the correct amount of tax.... [S]uch record- keeping requirements accompany all taxes and remain in force despite ERISA." [Self-Insurance Inst. of Am. v. Snyder, No. 12-2264 (6th Cir. Aug. 4, 2014)]
