A federal judge recently sided with a widow who was denied her late husband’s life insurance benefits as the beneficiary, finding Tufts Medical Center Physicians Organization Inc. and its human resources department may have been obligated to fully provide her with information to avoid a lapse in coverage, reports BenefitsPro. The plaintiff, Lisa Erban, sued TMCPO, along with its human resource director, Nicolas Martin, alleging that she was not informed that her husband was entitled to keep his life insurance policy in place for 12 months after his last day of work if his premiums were paid.
