Purpose of the rule or reason for the change:
The purpose for the change is to remove an outdated section governing correspondence and add a new section regarding protected documents.
Summary of the rule or change:
The change removes the current section, "Correspondence and Status Checks", which has been determined to be outdated. In its place, the rule substitutes a new section, "Classification of Documents". This new section sets forth what information can be classified as protected under Section 63G-2-305 (GRAMA) and delineates the process for requesting protected status for certain documents.
State statutory or constitutional authorization for this rule:
- Section 31A-22-807
- Section 31A-2-201.1
- Subsection 31A-2-202(2)
- Subsection 31A-2-201(3)
Anticipated cost or savings to:
the state budget:
There is no anticipated cost or savings to state budget. The Insurance Department has processes in place to review requests for protected status. The addition of the new section to this rule merely codifies the procedure.
There is no anticipated cost or savings to local government. The rule governs how companies that submit credit life or credit accident and health forms and rate filings can have certain information classified as protected.
There is no anticipated cost or savings to small businesses. The rule governs how companies that submit credit life or credit accident and health forms and rate filings can have certain information classified as protected.
persons other than small businesses, businesses, or local governmental entities:
There is no anticipated cost or savings to any other persons. The rule governs how companies that submit credit life or credit accident and health forms and rate filings can have certain information classified as protected. Companies already file requests for protected status as a matter of course; this rule merely codifies the procedure.
Compliance costs for affected persons:
There are no compliance costs for affected persons. There are no costs associated with this rule amendment.
Comments by the department head on the fiscal impact the rule may have on businesses:
The Utah Insurance Department complies and has complied with the law as set forth in Section 63G-2-305. The substitution in this rule merely codifies the department's procedures with respect to classifying records as protected. There will be no fiscal impact because procedures are already in place and in use.
