Patrick Begos of Begos Brown & Green LLP, recently lectured on “Advanced ERISA Claim Handling” at the Life, Health, Disability and ERISA Claims Conference sponsored by Defense Research Institute. This conference is one of the pre-eminent national seminars for practitioners in the ERISA benefit litigation field. This year’s conference was held in Boston, across the street from the site of the Boston Marathon bombing, just weeks after the incident. Topics included in-house counsel’s role in the claim process, and whether such involvement is privileged; the employer’s role, along with the insurance carrier, in collecting premiums, determining eligibility, and calculating covered earnings treating physicians as advocates.
