Exemption of Student Health Centers from Insurance Code

Five-Year Notice of Review and Statement of Continuation

DAR File No.: 41442
Filed: 04/04/2017 01:08:15 PM


Concise explanation of the particular statutory provisions under which the rule is enacted and how these provisions authorize or require the rule:

Section 31A-2-201 authorizes the commissioner to implement by rule the provisions of Title 31A. Subsection 31A-1-103(3)(d) allows the commissioner to exempt from regulation under Title 31A businesses specified by findings that the transaction of business in this state does not require regulation for the protection of its residents or that would be impracticable to require compliance.

Summary of written comments received during and since the last five-year review of the rule from interested persons supporting or opposing the rule:

The department has received no written comments regarding this rule during the past five years.

Reasoned justification for continuation of the rule, including reasons why the agency disagrees with comments in opposition to the rule, if any:

The purpose of this rule is to exempt student health centers established by institutions of higher education from regulation under the Utah Insurance Code. The rule clarifies what is and is not insurance so as to not impose a greater burden on an organization that does not sell insurance. It states that student health centers are not insurance and therefore are not regulated by the Utah Insurance Department. Health insurance from an insurer sold or provided through an institution to its students is not exempt from state insurance regulations. Therefore, this rule should be continued.
