Title 14. Insurance
Agency 5. State Corporation Commission, Bureau of Insurance
Chapter 360. Rules Governing Local Government Group Self-Insurance Pools

14VAC5-360-30. Application for license as group self-insurance pool; requirements; approval; review.

A. Two or more political subdivisions may be licensed by the commission as a group self-insurance pool for the purpose of entering into agreements to pool their liabilities under the Act. The application for a license shall be made on a form prescribed by the commission and shall contain answers to all questions and shall be verified by the oath or affidavit of at least one member of the board of the pool, and the administrator.

B. The commission may disapprove an application for the formation of a group self-insurance pool and may suspend or withdraw approval whenever it finds that applicant or pool:

1. Has refused to submit its books, papers, accounts, or affairs to the reasonable inspection of the commission or its representative;

2. Has refused, or its officers or agents have refused, to furnish satisfactory evidence of its financial and business standing or solvency;

3. Is insolvent, or is in such condition that its further transaction of business in this Commonwealth is hazardous to its members and creditors in this Commonwealth, and to the public;

4. Has refused or neglected to pay a valid final judgment against it within 60 days after its rendition;

5. Has violated any law of this Commonwealth or has violated or exceeded the powers granted by its members;

6. Has failed to pay any fees, taxes or charges imposed in this Commonwealth within 60 days after they are due and payable, or within 60 days after final disposition of any legal contest with respect to liability therefor; or

7. Has been found insolvent by a court of any other state, or by the insurance commissioner or other proper officer or agency of any other state, and has been prohibited from doing business in such state.

C. If after review of the pool's application and other additional information required by this chapter, the commission is satisfied that the pool's financial condition and method of operation are such that the pool may reasonably be expected to meet the obligations which it has undertaken, and has fully disclosed to its members or potential members the coverages and obligations of membership in the plan, then the commission shall issue a license to the pool. The commission shall act on the application as promptly as practical under the existing circumstances.

D. If the commission rejects the pool's application, notice shall be served personally, or by certified or registered mail, upon all interested parties stating the reason for the rejection. The pool shall be provided an opportunity to introduce evidence and be heard in a hearing convened within a timely manner. Such hearing may be formal or informal.
