Pursuant to Insurance Code §2203.151(a)(3) and (4), the
Texas Medical Liability Insurance Underwriting Association may cede
and purchase reinsurance. The purpose of this section is to implement
Insurance Code §2203.151(a)(3) and (4).
(1) The association may develop a reinsurance program
that will provide for the purchase of reinsurance and that will maintain
the purpose of the association to provide medical liability insurance
and general liability insurance on a self-supporting basis.
(2) A reinsurance program is subject to prior approval
by the Commissioner, and such prior approval must be obtained before
implementation of the reinsurance program. The program must include,
but is not limited to, the proposed reinsurance program structure
and terms, including the reinsurance proposal and proposed reinsurance
contract terms and conditions; cost of the proposed reinsurance program;
the recommended percentage of reinsured business to be assumed by
each individual reinsurer; a summary of the financial condition of
each recommended reinsurer; the association's costs to administer
the reinsurance program; compliance with Subchapter F of Chapter 7
of this title (relating to Reinsurance), to the extent that provisions
do not conflict with this section or Chapter 2203 of the Insurance
Code, or unless such provisions are waived by the Commissioner; and
any other information the Commissioner deems necessary to enable the
Commissioner to determine whether to approve or disapprove the reinsurance
program. The association must submit to the Commissioner, no later
than 90 days before expiration of the reinsurance contract, the proposed
renewal reinsurance program or a statement of the reasons why a reinsurance
program is no longer necessary.
(3) The association must submit written notice of any
amendment to any existing reinsurance contract to the Commissioner
at least 60 days prior to the effective date of the proposed amendment.
The notice must include an explanation of the reason for the amendment
and a copy of the draft amendment. The amendment will be deemed approved
by the Commissioner unless within 60 days following the submission
of the written notice the Commissioner disapproves the amendment.
