DEPARTMENT OF INSURANCE

FORMS AND RATES BULLETIN NO. 1

FILING PROCEDURES: RATES, RULES, POLICY FORMS

AND RATING PLANS

June 20, 2006

When this bulletin was first issued on March 24, 1983, the Delaware Department of Insurance believed that it was essential that insurers highlight the effect of the individual filings so that the Department could identify and place emphasis on those that had, and continue to have, the greatest impact on Delaware’s Citizens. This bulletin, as promulgated in 1983, and subsequently revised, contained forms to be completed by all insurers for all lines of insurance sold in Delaware. While the premise for the original bulletin has not changed, the market has changed along with changes in the technology used to complete and submit filings online instead of by mail. Through the use of website technology, general instructions, procedures, and forms for the submission of rates, forms, advertisements, and rules, as prescribed by the Commissioner, may be found on the Department's website and shall, after this date, be used by insurers when submitting rates, forms, advertisements and rules with this Department.

By this republication of Forms and Rates Bulletin No. 1, the prior bulletin is rescinded and insurers are directed to follow the website instructions with respect to the rates, forms, advertisements and/or rules that are required to be filed in the Delaware Department of Insurance. Any subsequent changes to the required documents will be published on the Department’s website only and the insurer shall be responsible for completing the latest form as it is published on the website.
