2006 Louisiana Laws - RS 22:1415 — Rate administration
§1415. Rate administration
A. Recording and reporting of loss and expense experience. The commission shall promulgate reasonable rules and statistical plans, reasonably adapted to each of the rating systems on file with the commission, which may be modified from time to time and which shall be used thereafter by each insurer in the recording and reporting of its loss and countrywide expense experience, in order that the experience of all insurers may be made available at least annually in such form and detail as may be necessary to aid the office of property and casualty and the commission in determining whether rating systems comply with the standards set forth in R.S. 22:1404. Such rules and plans may also provide for the recording and reporting of expense experience items which are specially applicable to this state and are not susceptible of determination by a prorating of countrywide expense experience. In promulgating such rules and plans, the commission shall give due consideration to the ratings systems on file with the commission and, in order that such rules and plans may be as uniform as is practicable among the several states, to the rules and to the form of the plans used for such rating systems in other states. No insurer shall be required to record or report its loss experience on a classification basis that is inconsistent with the rating system filed by it. The commission may designate one or more rating organizations or other agencies to assist it in gathering such experience and making compilations thereof, and such compilations shall be made available, subject to reasonable rules promulgated by the commission, to insurers and rating organizations.
B. Interchange of rating plan data. Reasonable rules and plans may be promulgated by the commission for the interchange of data necessary for the application of rating plans.
C. Consultation with other states. In order to further uniform administration of rate regulatory laws, the commission, the office of property and casualty, and every insurer and rating organization may exchange information and experience data with insurance supervisory officials, insurers, and rating organizations in other states and may consult with them with respect to ratemaking and the application of rating systems.
D. Rules and regulations. The commission may make reasonable rules and regulations necessary to effect the purposes of this Part, but no such rule or regulation shall unfairly discriminate against any insurer on account of its plan of operation or otherwise, regardless of whether or not any such insurer is a member of a rating organization.
