SELF-FUNDED HEALTH CARE PLANS
41-4008. Trust fund liability — fiduciary funds. (1) The trust fund of a self-funded plan shall be legally liable for payment of all applicable benefits stated in the schedule of benefits for such plan in effect at the time a claim thereunder arises.
(2) Funds in the trust fund are fiduciary funds, and are not liable to any obligation of any plan sponsor, including any employer participant or postsecondary educational institution, nor are fiduciary funds held in the trust subject to garnishment or levy. The prohibition on garnishment or levy shall not be deemed to prohibit levy upon the trust fund by any provider thereof (or its assignee) for health care services rendered to a beneficiary.
(3) All funds and moneys received by the self-funded plan and all funds billed and paid as contributions to the trust fund shall be timely deposited in the trust account and shall be held in no other name than the name of the self-funded plan.
