District Court: Medical Providers Lacked Standing for Reimbursement Due to Plan's Anti-Assignment Clause
Lane Powell PCLink to more items from this source
Nov. 17, 2015
"The plan specified that benefits may not be assigned to another party, including the right to bring legal action. The University of Wisconsin Hospital sued Aetna, seeking reimbursement for medical expenses.... Anti-assignment clauses in ERISA employee welfare benefit plans are enforceable. As a result, medical providers lack standing to pursue payment as 'beneficiaries.' " [Univ. of Wisconsin Hospitals v. Aetna Health & Life Ins. Co., No. 15-cv-240 (W.D. Wis. Nov. 2, 2015)]
