Thanks to the L.A. Times for its support of amending ERISA to provide meaningful remedies when insurers act in bad faith in denying claims.  When there is no accountability for behaving badly in a competitive environment, you guarantee that bad behavior will increase.

The discussions about national healthcare reform contain very little comment about the near complete legal immunity of health insurers and employer sponsored plans.  As I've discussed before, there is relatively no accountability when ERISA plan fiduciaries wrongfully deny benefits or violate the terms of ERISA.  Tony Sebok, Professor of Law at the Cardozo Law School has some comments today on that issue. He promises to post additional thoughts as the week goes on.  

For more information about the problems ERISA creates, take a look at a new blog from a friend of mine, Richard Johnston.  Good stuff.
