Seventh Circuit permits ERISA suits to be brought against insurers

On July 26, 2013, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit issued a ruling in Larson v. United Healthcare Insur.Co., No. 12-1256 click here permitting ERISA plaintiffs to sue insurance companies that underwrite and are responsible for paying benefits when claims are asserted that benefits have been wrongfully denied. This ruling marks a significant change from prior Seventh Circuit case law that permits suits to recover benefits pursuant to 29 U.S.C. Sec. 1132(a)(1)(B) to be brought only against the benefit plan. A more detailed article about the case by Mark DeBofsky will be appearing in the Chicago Daily Law Bulletin the next few weeks and will be made available on this website.
