The National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC) has approved a model bulletin aimed at insurers that write long-term care insurance (LTCI).
The NAIC’s executive committee and its plenary — a body that includes all voting NAIC members — approved the model bulletin today at a meeting in Washington.
Regulators in individual states and other member jurisdictions, such as territories, can decide for themselves whether to use the model.
The model, which was included in a meeting materials packet, was developed by the NAIC’s Senior Issues Task Force.
The task force is part of the NAIC’s Health Insurance and Managed Care Committee.
Regulators that use the model as approved would send it to all licensed insurers writing LTCI policies.
The bulletin would set alternative filing requirements for LTCI premium rate increases.
