The state of Michigan levies a tax on health claims made under self funded plans – 1% flat to those rendered in state to in state residents, along with recordkeeping and reporting obligations. The Supreme Court has vacated its earlier ruling and the Sixth Circuit has concluded that ERISA does not preempt the tax. Will other states follow? A great way to make money but not so great for self funded plans trying to save it.
What implication will state changes have? The Supreme Court allows Michigan to proceed
