Wash. Admin. Code § 284-87-090 - Eligibility of licensees for coverage

Current through Register Vol. 22-07, April 1, 2022

Any licensee that is unable to obtain midwifery or birthing center insurance with liability limits of at least one million dollars per claim and three million dollars per annual aggregate, or other minimum level of mandated coverage as determined by the department of health, from the voluntary insurance market or from any market assistance plan organized pursuant to RCW 48.22.050, is eligible to apply for coverage through the association. The association's service company or companies shall promptly process such application and, if the licensee is judged to be an acceptable insurable risk, offer coverage to the licensee. In view of the purpose of chapter 48.87 RCW, every licensee will be presumed to be an acceptable insurable risk for the association. To refuse or cancel coverage to any licensee meeting the other eligibility requirements of this section, the association must have the prior written approval of the commissioner. The commissioner will grant such approval only if the association demonstrates that circumstances justify refusing or canceling coverage to the licensee.
