New NYLJ Health Article: "Health Plans: Getting Ready to Comply With 'Michelle's Law'"

Section Member Frank Serbaroli, with the New York office of Greenberg Traurig, writes a regular "Expert Analysis" column for the New York Law Journal. The latest article, "Health Plans: Getting Ready To Comply With 'Michelle's Law,'" appears in the July 29, 2009 edition:

Michelle’s Law amends the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA),2 the Public Health Service Act, and the Internal Revenue Code. It prohibits a group health plan from terminating coverage of a dependent child for up to one year, when that child takes a medically necessary leave of absence from (or changes enrollment at) a postsecondary educational institution, and the leave would otherwise result in ineligibility for health coverage.
