Re: Texas Automobile Insurance Plan Association Rates

On November 16, 2017, in accordance with Insurance Code §2151.2022, the commissioner of insurance issued Commissioner's Order No. 2017-5289. The order approves changes in the rates for private passenger and commercial automobile insurance provided through the Texas Automobile Insurance Plan Association (TAIPA), which is the state's assigned risk plan. The changes are effective March 1, 2018.

The commissioner ordered that TAIPA revise its rates to be charged for private passenger automobile insurance by coverage, territory, and class as described in the filing by 4.8 percent for bodily injury liability, 4.9 percent for property damage liability, 4.3 percent for personal injury protection, 4.3 percent for uninsured/underinsured motorist bodily injury liability, and 4.2 percent for uninsured/underinsured motorist property damage liability.

The commissioner ordered that TAIPA revise its rates to be charged for commercial automobile insurance policies by coverage, territory, and vehicle type as described in the filing by 2.1 percent for bodily injury liability, 1.1 percent for property damage liability, 0.0 percent for personal injury protection, and make no changes to commercial automobile uninsured/underinsured motorist bodily injury liability, or uninsured/underinsured motorist property damage liability rates.

You may download the revised rates for new and renewal business effective on or after March 1, 2018, from the TDI website at www.tdi.texas.gov/bulletins/index.html. Select Commissioner's Bulletin No. B-0039-17. You may also download the new TAIPA private passenger and commercial automobile rate bulletins, which are similar in format to the rate pages that will soon appear in the TAIPA manual. These are available in Excel and PDF formats.
