DAR File No.: 43998
Filed: 08/20/2019 10:49:04 AM


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 make rules to implement the provisions of the Insurance Code, Title 31A. Section 31A-19a-103 authorizes the Insurance Commissioner to exempt a person, a class of persons, or a market segment from Title 31A, Chapter 19a. This rule exempts (a) rates, the process of developing (a) rates, special risk rating, commercial excess, and umbrella liability insurance from the rate filing requirements in Section 31A-19a-203.

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 Insurance 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:

There are four key reasons for continuing this rule: 1) it clarifies Title 31A, Chapter 19a; 2) it exempts certain lines of insurance from filing rates; 3) it puts a limitation on scheduled rating plans; and 4) it provides definitions for (a) rates, excess insurance, individual risk filing, self-insured retention, and umbrella liability insurance.
