18A:64A-25.39. Review of bylaws; investigations by the Commissioner of Insurance
Review of bylaws; investigations by the Commissioner of Insurance.
a. No county college insurance group, nor any joint self-insurance fund of the group, may begin functioning as a means of providing insurance coverage or protection for or among its members until the group's bylaws have been filed with and approved by the commissioner. If the commissioner fails to approve or disapprove the bylaws within 60 days following filing of the bylaws in his office, the bylaws shall be deemed approved. The commissioner may disapprove the bylaws only if the bylaws do not conform with the provisions of this act. He shall set forth the reasons for his disapproval in writing. The reasonable costs of the commissioner's review of the bylaws shall be chargeable to the county colleges seeking to establish the group.
b. Every county college insurance group shall file an annual report, on a form prescribed by the commissioner, at a time to be fixed by the commissioner. The report shall include a financial statement of the group's assets and liabilities, the claims paid during the preceding 12 months, current reserves, incurred losses, and any other information that the commissioner may require.
c. The commissioner shall have authority to examine the books, records and affairs of any county college insurance group or joint self-insurance fund for the purpose of determining compliance with this act. The reasonable costs of any examination or review shall be chargeable to the county college insurance group.
d. If at any time the commissioner determines that the county college insurance group has experienced a deterioration in its financial condition which adversely affects or will adversely affect its ability to pay expected losses, he may: (1) require an increase in the reserves of the insurer required by section 4 of this act; or (2) require the purchase of excess insurance or reinsurance.
