Chapter 70 - Reciprocal Insurers
§ 23-70-118 - Assessments.
(a) Assessments may be levied from time to time upon subscribers of a domestic reciprocal insurer, liable therefor under the terms of their policies, by the attorney upon approval in advance by the subscribers' advisory committee and the Insurance Commissioner or by the commissioner in liquidation of the insurer.
(b) Each subscriber's share of a deficiency for which an assessment is made, but not exceeding in any event his or her aggregate contingent liability as computed in accordance with 23-70-119, shall be computed by applying to the premiums earned on the subscribers' policies during the period to be covered by the assessment the ratio of the total deficiency to the total premiums earned during the period upon all policies subject to the assessment.
(c) In computing the earned premiums for the purposes of this section, the gross premiums received by the insurer for the policy shall be used as a base, solely deducting therefrom charges not recurring upon the renewal or extension of the policy.
(d) No subscriber shall have an offset against any assessment for which he or she is liable on account of any claim for unearned premiums or losses payable.
(e) Every subscriber of a domestic reciprocal insurer having contingent liability shall be liable for and shall pay his or her share of any assessment, as computed and limited in accordance with this chapter, if:
(1) While his or her policy is in force or within one (1) year after its termination, he or she is notified by either the attorney or the commissioner of his or her intentions to levy the assessment; or
(2) An order to show cause why a receiver, conservator, rehabilitator, or liquidator of the insurer should not be appointed is issued while his or her policy is in force or within one (1) year after its termination.
