Supreme Court to Consider ERISA Implications of Vermont Health Care Claims Database
Bloomberg BNALink to more items from this source
June 30, 2015
"Vermont argued that these types of databases -- which several states use to collect information from medical providers and insurance companies -- are useful in shaping health-care policy, evaluating existing health-care programs and improving the quality and affordability of patient care. VHCURES hit a roadblock in 2014, when the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit issued a split ruling striking the program down as preempted by ERISA. According to the two-judge majority, VHCURES placed a significant burden on reporting, which the majority called a 'core ERISA function'." [Gobeille v. Liberty Mutual Ins. Co. (2d Cir. Feb. 4, 2014, cert. pet. granted June 29, 2015)]
