NOTICE OF REVIEW AND STATEMENT OF CONTINUATION
Concise explanation of the particular statutory provisions under which the rule is enacted and how these provisions authorize or require the rule:
Subsection 31A-2-201(3) authorizes the Insurance Commissioner to write rules to implement the provisions of the Insurance Code, Title 31A. Section 31A-2-201.1 authorizes the Insurance Commissioner to write rules with specific requirements for filing forms, rates, binders, and reports to the Department of Insurance (Department). Subsection 31A-2-202(2) authorizes the Insurance Commissioner to prescribe forms to gather information or to use the National Association of Insurance Commissioners' annual statement forms to gather basic financial data and market regulation analysis. Section 31A-19a-203 allows the Insurance Commissioner to write rules to prescribe procedures for submitting rate filings electronically.
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 amended this rule in 2017, and received one industry comment at that time. The comment asked if the Department planned to issue a form or example for what an actuarial certification would look like. The Department answered the comment stating that the format of the certification is up to the carrier.
Reasoned justification for continuation of the rule, including reasons why the agency disagrees with comments in opposition to the rule, if any:
This rule is important as it gives detailed instructions on how a filer must file rates, rules, binders, and forms as required by Utah statute. Therefore, this rule should be continued.
