COMMISSIONER'S BULLETIN # B-0003-15

February 12, 2015


To: All Licensed Carriers, Eligible Surplus Lines Companies, and Health Maintenance Organizations Authorized or Eligible To Do Business In Texas


Re: 2014 Policy Count Exhibit

Texas Insurance Code Section 521.052 requires the Texas Department of Insurance to provide consumers with complaint ratios.  The ratios must represent the number of “justified, verified as accurate, and documented as valid” complaints received against a company, “expressed as a percentage of the total number of insurance policies written by the insurer and in force on December 31 of the preceding year.”  To satisfy this mandate for complaints received in 2014, TDI must require companies to report the number of policies in force as of December 31, 2014. 

Please read, then complete and file with TDI, the attached form to report the required information.  The filing is due no later than March 1, 2015.  TDI requests this information under Insurance Code Section 38.001 and Section 521.052.

This filing is not for the combined reporting of a group of affiliated companies.  Each company licensed in Texas as of December 31, 2014, must submit a separate filing.  TDI is sending a separate notice to each licensed company and to each surplus lines carrier eligible to do business in Texas. 

NOTE:  The mechanism TDI uses to collect this data is the same as used last year, that is, an Adobe fillable PDF form.  While the form is essentially the same, we have eliminated a few fields that we required last year.  Please see the instructions in the email announcement for details.  After submitting your filing electronically, please do not also mail the form to TDI.

If you have any questions about the form or its filing, please contact Jack Evins by email at Jack.Evins@tdi.texas.gov, or by phone at 512-676-6284.  Thank you for assisting us in providing accurate information to Texas consumers.

David C. Mattax
Commissioner of Insurance
