Insurance Disclosures And Supervision

Concerning the supervision of insurers, and, in connection therewith, establishing certain disclosure requirements for insurers.
Session:
2019 Regular Session
Subject:
Insurance
Bill Summary

The bill establishes, with amendments, certain model laws of the National Association of Insurance Commissioners, which laws concern corporate governance annual disclosures (CGADs) by insurers and insurance groups (insurers). On June 1, 2020, and on June 1 of each year thereafter, an insurer shall submit to the commissioner of insurance (commissioner) a CGAD that contains sufficient information to provide the commissioner with a clear understanding of the insurer's corporate governance structure, policies, and practices.

The bill establishes confidentiality requirements for the commissioner and any third-party consultants retained by the commissioner.

The bill states that any insurer that fails, without just cause, to timely file a CGAD shall pay, after notice and a hearing, a penalty of $200 for each day's delay. The maximum penalty is $25,000.

The bill allows the commissioner to act as the group-wide supervisor for an internationally active insurance group or to designate or acknowledge another regulatory official as the group-wide supervisor for an internationally active insurance group that:

  • Does not have substantial insurance operations in the United States;
  • Has substantial insurance operations in the United States, but not in Colorado; or
  • Has substantial insurance operations in the United States and in Colorado, but the commissioner has determined pursuant to certain criteria that the other regulatory official is the appropriate group-wide supervisor.

The bill sets forth certain permissible supervisory activities for a group-wide supervisor of an internationally active insurance group.
