The Employment Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) is a federal law that regulates the operation of employer-provided insurance plans and grants certain rights to private sector employees regarding their health insurance plans.
If you are receiving insurance benefits from your employer and the benefits package meets the requirements established by federal law, your rights will be protected under ERISA. Some plans require that employees work for a period of time before receiving benefits or have other qualification requirements.
Under ERISA, private sector employees with an eligible health insurance plan have the right to:
- Be provided with plan information, including the Summary Plan Description (SPD), plan features, rules and funding
- Understand the fiduciary duties and responsibilities of those who administer and control the plan assets
- Have a formal grievance procedure and an appeals process available
- File a lawsuit against the plan for benefits, violations of ERISA and breaches of fiduciary duties
