NU Online News Service, June 9, 2004, 2:29 p.m. EDT – The Market Conduct Surveillance Model Act and a stripped-down viatical settlement model could come up for a vote at a plenary session of the National Association of Insurance Commissioners.[@@]
The Kansas City, Mo., group is getting ready to start its summer meeting in San Francisco. NAIC meeting plenary sessions give all commissioners a chance to vote on proposed NAIC models.
NAIC Secretary-Treasurer Joel Ario says the NAIC has based its market conduct model draft on a model adopted in February by the National Conference of Insurance Legislators, Albany, N.Y.
But NCOIL says the NAIC has made substantive changes in its model, not just technical changes.
The other hot model, the viatical settlement model, probably will exclude a provision that might have required life insurance agents to get a separate viatical broker license before handling viatical settlement transactions.
