17B:27C-5 Deposit, maintenance of cash, securities.

5. a. A self-funded multiple employer welfare arrangement shall deposit and continuously maintain with a financial institution licensed in this State, cash or securities as defined in N.J.S. 17B:18-37, having an admitted asset value of not less than $200,000. The deposit shall be held for the benefit and protection of all covered members of the self-funded multiple employer welfare arrangement. The self-funded multiple employer welfare arrangement shall further maintain a cash reserve for loss in an amount established by a qualified actuary as being adequate to provide for all incurred losses including unpaid claims.

b. A self-funded multiple employer welfare arrangement shall maintain aggregate stop-loss coverage, with a retention level of 125 percent of expected claims per year, including provisions to cover incurred, unpaid claims liability in the event of the termination or liquidation of the self-funded multiple employer welfare arrangement, and specific stop-loss coverage, with a retention level determined annually by a qualified actuary based on sound actuarial principles. Any stop-loss contract maintained pursuant to this subsection shall contain a provision that the stop-loss insurer shall give the self-funded multiple employer welfare arrangement and the commissioner a minimum of 180 days' notice of cancellation or nonrenewal. If the self-funded multiple employer welfare arrangement fails to secure replacement coverage within 90 days after receipt of the notice of cancellation or nonrenewal, the trustees of the self-funded multiple employer welfare arrangement shall provide for the orderly liquidation of the self-funded multiple employer welfare arrangement.
