Notice of Public Hearing to Adopt Rules

A public hearing will be held in the West River Conference Room, 124 South Euclid Avenue, 2nd Floor, Pierre, SD 57501, on August 29, 2018 at 10:00 a.m. CST to consider the adoption and amendment of proposed rules to the following:

Chapters 20:06:09

The effect of this rule change is to update the ORSA Manual referenced in rule.

The reason for adopting this rule change is to ensure parties are referring to the most recent edition of the manual.

Chapters 20:06:18

The effect of this rule change is to change the term "qualification" to "line of authority."

The Division is making this rule change to help bring uniformity to producer licensing laws and practices. This will help reduce the unnecessary complexity for insurance producers and make our rules more consistent with national standards.

Chapters 20:06:22

The effect of the rules is to update rating standards for health issuers.

The reason for adopting this rule is to meet and clarify federal requirements.

Chapters 20:06:39, 20:06:54 and 20:06:55

The effect of the rules is to update standards for the sale of individual health insurance and update references to preventive services.

The reason for adopting this rule is to meet and clarify federal requirements.

The Division may modify or amend a proposed rule at that time to include or exclude matters that are described in this notice.
