§ 27-4-24.1 Waiting period Effective date of filings.
(a) Each filing shall be on file for a waiting period of thirty (30) days before it becomes effective, which period may be extended by the commissioner for an additional period not to exceed thirty (30) days if the commissioner gives written notice within the waiting period to the insurer or organization which made the filing that he or she needs additional time for the consideration of the filing. Upon written application by the insurer or organization, the commissioner may authorize a filing that he or she has reviewed to become effective before the expiration of the waiting period or any extension. A filing shall be deemed to meet the requirements of this chapter and to become effective unless disapproved by the commissioner, as provided in this chapter, within the waiting period or any extension.
(b) Section (a) above does not apply to filings made through the Interstate Insurance Product Commission pursuant to chapter 2.5 of this title.
