What JUA Stands For
Eligibility for Insurance Through the JUA
How Coverage May Be Obtained
Physicians may apply for coverage through the JUA if two insurers in the admitted voluntary market reject application for coverage. Evidence of the rejections shall be provided to the JUA. The JUA shall consider a rejection to have occurred if the applicant is accepted in the admitted voluntary market at a rate higher than the rates charged by the JUA. Application for coverage may be made directly to the JUA or any Texas licensed agent may make application to the JUA on behalf of an eligible applicant. Applications may be obtained from the JUA.
