06.26.08Commenting on the recent Supreme Court decision in MetLife v. Glenn, Anthony Shelley emphasizes the court's suggestion that an insurance company could insulate itself from any loss of deferential review through corporate structures that separate plan decisionmakers from those concerned with finances or by including certain safeguards. "Indeed, for employers and insurers going forward, the most important aspect of the decision is its instruction that they set up internal safeguards for accurate claims decisionmaking in order to secure a robustly deferential review," Shelley says.
