Casualty Insurance Rating

SECTION 27-9-29

§ 27-9-29. Review of application of rating system to insured.

Every rating organization and every insurer which makes its own rates shall provide within this state reasonable means by which any person aggrieved by the application of its rating system may be heard, in person or by his or her authorized representative, on his or her written request to review the manner in which the rating system has been applied in connection with the insurance afforded to that person. If the rating organization or insurer fails to grant or reject that request within thirty (30) days after it is made, the applicant may proceed in the same manner as if the applicant's application had been rejected. Any party affected by the action of the rating organization or insurer on that party's request may, within thirty (30) days after written notice of the action, appeal to the commissioner, who, after a hearing held upon not less than ten (10) days written notice to the appellant and to the rating organization or insurer, may affirm or reverse the action.
