Section 22-21-372Filing and approval of subscription rates; criteria; submission of relevant information.
(a) No contract providing dental service corporation benefits may be executed in this state unless the subscription rates outlined in said contract have been filed with and approved by the commissioner.
(b) Subscription rates must be established and justified in accordance with generally accepted insurance principles, including but not limited to the experience or judgment of the corporation making the rate filing or actuarial computations.
(c) The commissioner may disapprove subscription rates that are excessive, inadequate or unfairly discriminatory. Rates are not unfairly discriminatory because they are averaged broadly among persons covered under group, blanket or franchise contracts.
(d) The commissioner may require the submission of whatever relevant information is deemed necessary in determining whether to approve or disapprove a filing made under this section or Section 22-21-371.
