Properly designed and administered subrogation provisions in ERISA-covered group health plans and group insurance contracts can provide invaluable tools for managing costs. Unfortunately, various legal and practical problems often prevent ERISA-covered group health plans and insurers from realizing many of these benefits. With health care costs continuing to rise, many health plan administrators, insurers and fiduciaries are placing renewed emphasis on the design and enforcement of their plan’s subrogation provisions. Our distinguished panel will discuss the legal and practical ins and outs of the design, administration, and defense of effective group health plan policies and practices in ERISA-governed group health plans including:

  • Legal Basis of Subrogation Under ERISA
  • Why, When & When Not To Subrogate
  • The Law
  • The Process From Drafting, to Adjudication, to Recovery
  • Who Gets Hired To Do What, Why & When
  • Sticking Points & Plan Problems
  • Practical Dos & Don’t
