CHAPTER 27-43
Captive Insurance Companies

SECTION 27-43-7


§ 27-43-7 Reinsurance.

(a) Any captive insurance company may provide reinsurance on risks ceded by any other insurer, provided, that the captive insurance company and the insurer comply with the requirements established by regulations promulgated pursuant to this chapter.

(b) Any captive insurance company may reinsure its risks and take credit for reserves on risk or on portions of risk ceded to reinsurers as provided in chapter 1.1 of this title. Subsidiary captive insurance companies may take credit for reserves on risks or portions of risk ceded to reinsurers not complying with chapter 1.1 of this title only after obtaining the prior approval of the director. The director may require any other documents, financial information or other evidence that the reinsurer will be able to provide adequate security for its financial obligations. The commissioner may deny authorization or impose any limitations on the activities of a reinsurer that, in his or her judgment, are necessary and proper to provide adequate security for the ceding captive insurance company and for the protection and consequent benefit of the public at large.

(c) For the purposes of this chapter, the insurance by a captive insurance company of any workers' compensation qualified self-insured plan of its parent and affiliates shall be deemed to be reinsurance.
