On March 1, 2016, the Supreme Court made a decision in the Gobeille vs. Liberty Mutual case prohibiting states from mandating the submission of health care claims from ERISA-based self-insured employers.

However, the Supreme Court decision DOES NOT prohibit voluntary submission of claims information from self-insured ERISA plans, and non-ERISA self-insured employers are still required to submit data according to the current CO APCD rule.

CIVHC and the Colorado Department of Health Care Policy and Financing strongly recommend ERISA-based self-insured employers to submit their data to the CO APCD. By including claims information, employers can identify ways to save costs and improve the health of their employees while enhancing health care transparency for the benefit of all Coloradans.
