Wis. Admin. Code Office of the Commissioner of Insurance § Ins 57.12 - Standards for transactions within a holding company system

Current through November 29, 2021

(1) TRANSACTIONS WITHIN A HOLDING COMPANY SYSTEM. A care management organization or affiliate of a care management organization may not enter directly or indirectly into a transaction between the care management organization and the affiliate unless the care management organization and affiliate comply with all of the following:
(a) Comply with s. 648.45(5) and (6), Stats.
(b) Allocate to the care management organization for expenses incurred and payment received for the transaction in conformity with customary accounting practices consistently applied.
(c) Disclose clearly and accurately in books, accounts and records of each party the nature and details of the transaction including the accounting information which is necessary to support the reasonableness of the charges or fees to the respective parties.
(2) TRANSACTIONS REQUIRED TO BE REPORTED AND SUBJECT TO DISAPPROVAL. A care management organization, and a person attempting to acquire control of a care management organization, or an affiliate of a care management organization, which directly or indirectly is involved in or benefits from, a transaction, shall report, under s. 648.45(6), Stats., each of the following transactions to the commissioner in writing at least 30 days before the care management organization enters into the transaction, unless the commissioner in writing approves a shorter period:
(a) Sales, purchases, exchanges, loans, extensions of credit, guarantees, or investments involving the care management organization and an affiliate or a person attempting to acquire control of the care management organization if the transactions are equal to or exceed the lesser of 2% of the care management organization's assets or 10% of net assets as of December 31 of the immediately preceding calendar year.
(b) Loans, extensions of credit, or guarantees to any person who is not an affiliate, where the care management organization makes loans, extensions of credit or guarantees with the agreement or understanding that the proceeds of the transactions or benefit of the guarantees, in whole or in significant part, directly or indirectly, are to be used to make loans or extensions of credit to, to purchase assets of, or to make investments in, any affiliate of the care management organization making the loans, extensions of credit, or guarantee, or any person attempting to acquire control of the care management organization, if the transactions are equal to or exceed the lesser of 2% of the care management organization's assets or 10% of net assets as of December 31 of the immediately preceding calendar year.
(c) All management agreements, exclusive agency agreements, service contracts or cost-sharing arrangements which involve a care management organization and either an affiliate or a person attempting to acquire control of the care management organization.
(d) A transaction not in the ordinary course of business which involves a care management organization and either an affiliate of, or a person attempting to acquire control of, a care management organization and which involves or exposes to risk an amount equal to or exceeding the lesser of 2% of the care management organization's assets or 10% of net assets as of the 31st day of December of the immediately preceding calendar year.
(e) Any material transactions which the commissioner requires to be reported by order.
(3) ILLEGAL TRANSACTIONS NOT AUTHORIZED. This section does not authorize or permit any transaction which would be otherwise contrary to law.
(4) GROUP OR SERIES OF RELATED TRANSACTIONS. For the purpose of applying sub. (2), a group or series of related transactions shall be treated as if they are a single transaction.
(5) SUBTERFUGE PROHIBITED. A care management organization, person attempting to acquire control of a care management organization, person having control of a care management organization or affiliate of a care management organization may not enter into transactions which are part of a group or series of transactions if the purpose of those separate transactions is to attempt to avoid a threshold amount under this chapter.
(6) DISAPPROVAL. Transactions subject to reporting under sub. (2) may be disapproved by the commissioner, after consulting with the department, under s. 648.45(6) (b), Stats. No person may enter into or assent to a transaction that is disapproved by the commissioner or which is subject to reporting under sub. (2) but not reported.
(7) CARE MANAGEMENT ORGANIZATION MAY REPORT ON BEHALF OF AFFILIATE OR PERSON ATTEMPTING TO ACQUIRE CONTROL. A care management organization may file a report under sub. (2) on behalf of its affiliate or of the person attempting to acquire control of the care management organization. Lack of knowledge that a care management organization has not reported on behalf of the affiliate or person or that the report is incomplete or inaccurate is not a defense for the affiliate or person attempting to acquire control of the care management organization.
