Tuesday, September 9

  • Florida Cabinet meeting; 9:00 a.m.
    • Florida Office of Insurance Regulation (“OIR”) agenda
      • A repeal of Rules 69O-123.001, “Purpose” and 69O-123.002, “Procedure,” relating to the filing of civil remedy notices is proposed because the Florida Department of Financial Services (“DFS”) administers the applicable statutory requirements by Rule 69J-123.002. F.A.C.  The OIR does not enforce the provisions of the filing requirements, therefore the Rules are deemed as unnecessary. 
      • A repeal of Rule Chapter 69O-228 relating to continuing education requirements of insurance representatives is proposed, inasmuch as the OIR does not exercise authority over insurance representatives.  Rather, this is the role of the DFS.
      • Consideration of proposed amendments to Rule 69O-148.001, which addresses requirements for insurance policies that fund annuities and preneed contracts.  Currently, the Rule caps the maximum face amount at $7,500 and the statute caps it at $12,500.  The proposed Rule would remove the dollar amount cap and refer instead to the statute, thereby conforming the Rule with current law.
