Plastic Surgery Ctr. v. Aetna Life Ins. Co.

In Plastic Surgery Ctr. v. Aetna Life Ins. Co., the 3rd Circuit held that ERISA’s broad preemption clause found in section 514(a) does not preempt service providers from bringing common-law claims — such as breach of contract and promissory estoppel — against benefits providers when those benefits providers renege on their contractual obligations to pay for services.
