SCS HCS HB 50, 2015    (New Section - as Truly Agreed)    

382.525. 1. An insurer shall be exempt from the requirements of sections 382.500 to 382.550 if:
     (1) The insurer has annual direct written and unaffiliated assumed premium, including international direct and assumed premium but excluding premiums reinsured with the Federal Crop Insurance Corporation and Federal Flood Program, of less than five hundred million dollars; and
     (2) The insurance group of which the insurer is a member has annual direct written and unaffiliated assumed premium, including international direct and assumed premium but excluding premiums reinsured with the Federal Crop Insurance Corporation and the Federal Flood Program, of less than one billion dollars.
     2. If an insurer qualifies for exemption under subdivision (1) of subsection 1 of this section, but the insurance group of which the insurer is a member does not qualify for exemption under subdivision (2) of subsection 1 of this section, the ORSA summary report that may be required under section 382.520 shall include every insurer within the insurance group. Such requirement may be satisfied by the submission of more than one ORSA summary report for any combination of insurers, provided any combination of reports includes every insurer within the insurance group.
     3. If an insurer does not qualify for exemption under subdivision (1) of subsection 1 of this section, but the insurance group of which the insurer is a member qualifies for exemption under subdivision (2) of subsection 1 of this section, the only ORSA summary report that may be required under section 382.520 is the report applicable to such insurer.
     4. An insurer that does not qualify for exemption under subsection 1 of this section may apply to the director for a waiver from the requirements of sections 382.500 to 382.550 based upon unique circumstances. In deciding whether to grant the insurer's request for waiver, the director may consider the type and volume of business written, ownership and organizational structure, and any other factor the director considers relevant to the insurer or insurance group of which the insurer is a member. If the insurer is part of an insurance group with insurers domiciled in more than one state, the director shall coordinate with the lead state director or regulator and with the other domiciliary state directors or regulators in considering whether to grant the insurer's request for a waiver.
     5. Notwithstanding the exemptions in this section, the director may require that an insurer maintain a risk management framework, conduct an ORSA, and file an ORSA summary report:
     (1) Based on unique circumstances, including but not limited to the type and volume of business written, ownership and organization structure, federal agency requests, and international supervisor requests;
     (2) If the insurer has risk-based capital for company action level event as set forth in section 375.1255 or other applicable risk-based capital law, meets one or more of the standards of an insurer deemed to be in hazardous financial condition as defined in section 375.539, or otherwise exhibits qualities of a troubled insurer as determined by the director.
     6. If an insurer that qualifies for an exemption under subsection 1 of this section subsequently no longer qualifies for such exemption due to changes in premium as reflected in the insurer's most recent annual statement or in the most recent annual statements of the insurers within the insurance group of which the insurer is a member, the insurer shall have one year following the year in which the threshold is exceeded to comply with the requirements of sections 382.500 to 382.550.
