Bill Caption

Relating to confidentiality of reports and related information for a solvency examination of an insurance carrier.  

Fiscal Notes

No significant fiscal implication to the state is anticipated.

Bill Analysis

HB 2437 would amend the Insurance Code to add that a final or preliminary examination report and any information obtained during a solvency examination are confidential and privileged for all purposes and not subject to a subpoena, other than a grand jury subpoena, or discovery or admissibility in evidence in a civil action.    

Vote Recommendation Notes

This bill would protect the property rights of an insurance company that was the subject of a solvency report by preventing their private confidential information from being made available to their competitors. For this reason we support HB 2437.
