Idaho Department of Insurance to Hold Public Meeting to Receive Comments on Proposed Rules

Thursday July 21, 2022

BOISE, ID (July 21, 2022) – The Idaho Department of Insurance will hold a public meeting to receive comments on proposed rulemaking procedures on Tuesday, July 26, 2022, from 2:00 pm to 3:30 pm (MT). Both in-person and phone or virtual participation are available.

These rules are being presented for authorization as part of the DOI’s plan to review each rule every 5 years, consistent with the Governor’s Executive Order 2020-01: Zero-Based Regulation. Of note are proposed changes to IDAPA 18.02.02 intended to provide greater transparency to auto insurance policyholders regarding their underinsured motorist coverage.

It is anticipated that rulemaking stakeholders will propose and advocate for rulemaking changes as part of the negotiated rulemaking process. The DOI intends to carefully consider all changes presented by the public and may propose certain changes so long as they are consistent with the rules’ statutory authority and the Governor’s Executive Order.

The following rule chapters are germane to this rulemaking:

  • 18.02.02 – Automobile Insurance Policies;
  • 18.02.03 – Certificate of Liability Insurance for Motor Vehicles;
  • 18.07.01 – Rules Pertaining to Acquisitions of Control, Insurance Holding Company Systems and Mutual Insurance Holding Companies;
  • 18.07.02 – Reserve Liabilities and Minimum Valuations for Annuities and Pure Endowment Contracts;
  • 18.07.03 – Valuation of Life Insurance Policies Including the Use of Select Mortality Factors;

  • 18.07.09 – Life and Health Actuarial Opinion and Memorandum Rule; and
  • 18.08.02 – Fire Protection Sprinkler Contractors.

Proposed rules and notices are published in the July 6, 2022 Idaho Administrative Bulletin, starting on page 124, and available on the DOI’s website at https://doi.idaho.gov/information/regulation/leg/. Additional information will be posted to the same website as the rules progress.
