Casualty Insurance Rating

SECTION 27-9-15

§ 27-9-15. Review of rates not covered by filings.

Within ten (10) days after any insurer has made or issued a contract or policy at a rate or premium other than is provided for by any filing made with the commissioner by or in its behalf, that insurer shall notify the commissioner, in writing, of that action in the form the commissioner may require. The commissioner shall review the notice as soon as reasonably possible after it has been received by him or her, in order to determine whether the contract or policy has been written at a rate or premium which 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 the receipt of the notice of the requirement, the information upon which it supports the rate or premium. Unless, within thirty (30) days after the receipt of the notice or the supporting information, the commissioner shall issue an order following a hearing, as provided in § 27-9-18, the rate or premium charged for the contract or policy shall be deemed to meet the requirements of this chapter; provided, that all contracts and policies issued under the provisions of this section shall state that the rate or premium charged for the contract or policy 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.
