Citation: 746 F.3d 497
Supreme Court Docket

Alfred Gobeille, in His Official Capacity as Chair of the Vermont Green Mountain Care Board
v.
Liberty Mutual Insurance Company
Background:

Vermont, like many other States, requires health care providers and health care payers to provide claims data and related information to the State's health care database. The law applies to all public and private entities that pay for health care services, including insurers, government programs, and third-party administrators. The State relies on the database to inform health care policy.

Question Presented:

Did the Second Circuit - in a 2-1 panel decision that disregarded the considered opinion advanced by the United States as amicus -err in holding that ERISA preempts Vermont's health care database law as applied to the third-party administrator for a self-funded ERISA plan?
