SECTION 27-6-16

§ 27-6-16. Review of rates not provided for by filings.

Within ten (10) days after any insurer has made or issued a contract or policy at a rate or premium other than as provided for by any filing made with the commissioner by or in its behalf, the insurer shall notify the commissioner in writing of that action in any form the commissioner may require. The commissioner shall review the notice as soon as reasonably possible after it has been received, in order to determine whether the contract or policy has been written at a rate or premium that meets the requirements of this chapter. When the notice is not accompanied by the information upon which the insurer supports the rate or premium, and the commissioner does not have sufficient information to determine whether the rate or premium meets the requirements of the chapter, the commissioner shall require the insurer to furnish within ten (10) days after receipt of the notice of that requirement, the information upon which it supports the rate or premium. Unless, within thirty (30) days after receipt of the notice or supporting information, the commissioner shall issue an order following a hearing, as provided in § 27-6-19, the rate or premium charged for the contract or policy shall be deemed to meet the requirements of this chapter; provided, that all contract and policies issued under the provisions of this section shall state that the rate or premium charged has not been reviewed by the commissioner and that it is subject to disapproval or modification as of the effective date of the contracts or policies.
