PHOENIX - In a matter of first impression, an Arizona appeals court on Sept. 5 held that the Federal Employee Health Benefits Act (FEHBA) does not preempt Arizona state law forbidding subrogation in personal injury cases (Matthew Kobold v. The Aetna Life Insurance Co., No. 12-0315, Ariz. App., Div. 1; 2013 Ariz. App. LEXIS 187).
