On March 1, the US Supreme Court affirmed a US Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit decision holding that ERISA preempts Vermont’s data reporting requirements as applied to self-insured group medical plans (and their plan administrators). The case is Gobeille v. Liberty Mutual Insurance Co. and Justice Kennedy wrote the majority opinion in this 6-2 decision.
