The State Corporation Commission’s (SCC) Bureau of Insurance has made it easier than ever for individuals to search for insurance policy forms and rate filings submitted by life and health insurance companies doing business in Virginia.
The new, more user-friendly search functionality, available on the Bureau’s website at www.scc.virginia.gov/boi/SERFFInquiry/default.aspx, will allow individuals to download entire publicly available life and health insurance rate and form filings instead of just a filing summary. Three different options for searching and viewing submissions of life and health insurance products are now available, as follows:
- Option 1: All submissions of life and health insurance products, including but not limited to, those identified in Options 2 and 3 below, may be searched and viewed through this option.
- Option 2: Form and rate submissions that are subject to the requirements of the federal Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act and related Virginia laws are available through this option.
- Option 3: Submissions of long-term care insurance premium rate changes are available through this option.
While option 1 provides access to all submissions of life and health insurance products, options 2 and 3 provide for a more detailed and narrowed search. Explanations of key terms have also been added. All browsing functionality is accessible through the link “Rate/Policy Form Search” on the Bureau’s website.
