Utah Admin. Code R590-191-6 - File and Record Documentation

Current through Bulletin No. 2021-18, September 15, 2021

Each insurer's claim files for policies or certificates are subject to examination by the commissioner of insurance or by the commissioner's duly appointed designees. To aid in such examination:

(1) The insurer shall maintain accessible and retrievable claim file data for examination. The insurer shall be able to provide the policy number, certificate number if any, duplicate of the policy as issued, date of loss, date notice of loss was received, date proof of loss was received, date any investigation commenced, date the investigation was completed, date of settlement or denial of the claim or date the claim was closed without settlement, documentation as to how the claim was settled and how any payments were calculated, and any other documentation relied upon for claim settlement by the insurer. This data shall be available for all open and closed files for at least the most recent three year period, or, for a Utah domiciled insurer, since the date of the previous examination by the department, whichever is longer.
(2) Detailed documentation shall be contained in each claim file in order to permit reconstruction of the insurer's activities relative to each claim.
(3) Each document within the claim file shall be noted as to date received, date processed or date mailed.
(4) The claim file records must be maintained either in hard copy files, or some other format that has the capability of duplication to hard copy.
