Subchapter A. REQUIREMENTS FOR FILING OF FORMS, RIDERS, AMENDMENTS, AND ENDORSEMENTS FOR LIFE, ACCIDENT AND HEALTH INSURANCE AND ANNUITIES

28 TAC §§3.1 - 3.21

The Commissioner of Insurance adopts the repeal of Subchapter A, §§3.1 - 3.21, concerning requirements for filing of policy forms, riders, amendments, and endorsements for life, accident and health insurance and annuities. The repeal is adopted without changes to the proposed text as published in the December 6, 2002 issue of the Texas Register (27 TexReg 11454) and will not be republished.

The repeal of §§3.1 - 3.21 is necessary so that new Subchapter A can be adopted which will streamline and clarify the overall process by which policy forms, certificates, riders, amendments, and endorsements for life, accident and health insurance and annuities are filed with the department for statutory and regulatory review and approval.

Simultaneous to the adoption of this repeal, adopted new Subchapter A, §§3.1 - 3.21, is published elsewhere in this issue of the Texas Register

The adopted repeal will result in the elimination of sections that are obsolete and combine information from several sections into the same or similar sections. This elimination of sections streamlines Chapter 3 of the Texas Administrative Code, and clarifies and simplifies the filing process with the department.

No comments were received.
