This regulatory bulletin supersedes and withdraws previously issued Regulatory Bulletin 2002-03 and Regulatory Bulletin 2002-03A, and summarizes updated requirements that insurers must observe with regard to notifying policyholders of premium increases, changes in deductible, reduction in limits or reduction in coverage.

Leslie R. Hess 05-17-2017

Surplus lines brokers no longer need to annually recertify surplus lines insurers for Arizona's List of Qualified Unauthorized Insurers (a.k.a. "White List").

This regulatory bulletin describes the impact of the expiration of A.A.C. R20-6-204, relating to the qualification of a foreign unauthorized insurer to be added to and retained on Arizona's White List.

Leslie R. Hess 12-19-2016

This regulatory bulletin clarifies that HB 2149 did not change the requirements for surplus lines brokers (SLBs) to report and pay taxes and stamping fees for service fees that SLBs charge insureds. Instead, HB 2149 clarified that a SLB does not need to report or pay taxes on a service fee charged to an insured by a insurance producer as may be permissible under ARS §§ 20-407(C) and 20-465, for which an insurance producer is not subject to premium tax but may be subject to federal and state income taxes.

Leslie R. Hess 10-25-2016

This bulletin supersedes Regulatory Bulletin 2015-01A.  This bulletin sets $2,610 as the threshold amount of property damages insurers may use to non-renew private passenger automobile policies.

Leslie R. Hess 03-08-2016

The purpose of this Bulletin is to advise all surety insurers that engage bail bond agents to post appearance (bail) bonds in Arizona courts of a change of procedure within the Department.  As of the date of this Bulletin, the Department will now refer indemnitors with unreleased liens on vehicles and real property directly to the surety insurer that issued a bail bond that the court has exonerated if it cannot communicate with the bail bond agent or the bail bond agent fails to cooperate in releasing the lien.

Andy Tobin 11-04-2015

This Regulatory Bulletin summarizes the major, newly enacted legislation affecting the Department, its licensees, and insurance consumers. This summary is not meant as an exhaustive list or a detailed analysis of all insurance-related bills. It generally describes the substantive content, but does not capture all details or necessarily cover all bills that may be of interest to a particular reader. The Department may follow this bulletin with other, more detailed bulletins related to implementation of the legislation.

Germaine L. Marks 06-19-2015

The Arizona Legislature passed HB 2135 (Laws 2015, Chapter 235), which establishes insurance and regulatory requirements for transportation network companies and their drivers.  The legislation is effective from and after July 3, 2015.  The purpose of this Regulatory Bulletin is to provide guidance to insurers that wish to file products with the Arizona Department of Insurance (“ADOI”) to provide coverage for individuals operating a transportation network company vehicle.

Germaine L. Marks 04-27-2015

The purpose of this Bulletin is to highlight (underscore) the criteria for certain health insurance benefits in the individual market to be exempt (“excepted”) from the market reforms of the Affordable care Act (“ACA”), and from corresponding regulations promulgated by the Department of Health and Human Services (“HHS”) in Title 45 of the Code of Federal Regulations (“45 CFR”).  In particular, this Bulletin addresses recent changes to 45 CFR §148.220 (2014), offers guidance regarding three issues raised by the amendment of §148.220, and provides sample language to meet the requirements of §148.220.
