A court of the Eastern District of Texas granted an out-of-network provider's motion to remand an action for emergency care expenses against an assignor's health insurer, holding that although ERISA possesses "extraordinary pre-emptive power," ERISA does not preempt the provider's action under Tex. Ins. Code Sec. 1271.155(a) where the Code implicates an independent legal duty.
