ERISA Disability Claim Regulations Get a Facelift
Lathrop & Gage, LLP Link to more items from this source
[Guidance Overview]
Feb. 23, 2017
"Plans must ensure independence and impartiality of persons involved in claims determinations ... [P]ractitioners, employers, and administrators should expect that plaintiffs will use the rule in litigation to engage in broad-reaching 'conflict' discovery.... [W]hile the rule is intended to reduce conflict and claim disputes, it probably does little to change how plans already operate on this front.... [It] threatens to increase discovery and litigation costs, contrary to ERISA's goals."
