18A:64A-25.35. County college insurance group

County college insurance group.

a. Any two or more county colleges may form and become members of a county college insurance group. A county college may take this action by resolution of the board of trustees of the county college. Through membership in a county college insurance group, a county college may participate in any joint self-insurance fund or funds, risk management programs or related services offered or provided by the group. The group shall have the power to establish a fund or funds for coverages authorized in section 2 of this act and to jointly purchase insurance or coverages under a master policy or contract of insurance for participating members. The group shall have the power to take other actions necessary to developing, administering, and providing risk management programs, joint self-insurance funds, joint insurance purchases, and related services.

b. The bylaws of the county college insurance group shall provide that any county college may join the group; provided it agrees to comply with the standards for membership, including risk management programs, which shall be established by the group, and may be a member as long as it complies with the standards for membership.

c. A county college insurance group may sue or be sued and shall appoint a natural person residing in this State or a corporation authorized to do business in this State as its agent for service of process. The group shall notify the commissioner of the appointment.

d. A county college insurance group is not an insurance company or an insurer under the laws of this State and the development, administration or provision by a group of joint self-insurance fund or funds, risk management programs and related services does not constitute the transaction of insurance or doing an insurance business. A group shall not be subject to the provisions of Title 17, Subtitle 3 of the Revised Statutes.
