Does State Insurance Department Have Jurisdiction Over Coordination of Benefits Between Health Plans for Akron Retirees?
City of Akron v. Ohio State Department of Insurance et al., Case No. 2014-0738
Tenth District Court of Appeals (Franklin County)
- Are the group health plans offered to Akron's retired police officers and firefighters uninsured agreements or group-type contracts that fall under the jurisdiction of the Ohio Department of Insurance?
- Does the definition of "person" in R.C. 3901.04(A)(2), which includes "any other legal entity," apply to all sections in Title 39, which governs insurance in the state?
- Are the City of Akron, the Ohio Police and Fire Pension Fund, and Medical Mutual of Ohio third-party payers, as defined in R.C. 3901.38(F)?
