Official Michigan Reporter Citation:  Not Applicable; Link to Opinion alt    

Coordination with Other Health and Accident Medical Insurance [§3109a]    
Coordination with ERISA Plans [§3109a]

Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA – 29 USC Section 1001, et seq.)    

In this unanimous per curiam Opinion, the Court of Appeals held that pursuant to the decision by the United States Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals in Northern Group Services v Auto Owners, the federal ERISA statute did not preempt the coordination of benefits provisions of §3109a of the no-fault statute. Therefore, plaintiff no-fault insurance company was entitled to reimbursement from defendant employee benefit plan.
