State insurance regulators might update a document that influences how many states handle insurance company failures.
The Receivership Model Law Working Group, part of the Financial Condition Committee at the National Association of Insurance Commissioners, now has a long-term care insurance issuer insolvency project on its official to-do list.
The Financial Condition Committee recently approved a set of 2017 charges that call for the working group to “evaluate and consider long-term care… insurance and the impact of (long-term care) insurer insolvencies on the Life and Health Insurance Guaranty Association Model Act (Number 520),” according to a meeting summary report.
The committee task force in charge of the Receivership Model Law Working Group told it to ask “interested regulators and interested parties to submit suggested issues, implications and possible solutions regarding (long-term care) insurance in receivership practices and Model Number 520.”
