AAIS insurance line programs are supported by a team of government affairs and product compliance specialists dedicated to monitoring laws and regulations on forms and rates in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico.
As a result, AAIS program users can be confident that AAIS forms and manuals are kept up to date and fully compliant with the latest laws and regulations.
AAIS's commitment to compliance starts at the top with regular, direct communication between AAIS government affairs specialists and state insurance departments.
AAIS government affairs staff members regularly attend meetings of the National Association of Insurance Commissioners and Association of Insurance Compliance Professionals, establishing face-to-face contact with regulators at all levels.
In those venues and in other communications, AAIS sustains a proactive engagement with regulators on product filing issues, working with them to produce compliant forms and promote speed to market.
Throughout this process, AAIS looks for opportunities to educate regulators about the practical implications of their directives.
Product compliance specialists at AAIS manage thousands of state filings each year, and their expertise and accessibility provide critical support to insurers in adopting and implementing AAIS programs.
Their services include:
- Countrywide filing of AAIS programs on behalf of companies that grant AAIS filing authorization. This service encompasses multistate forms and endorsements, amendatory and other state-specific forms and endorsements, plus multistate and state-specific manual rules and rating information.
- Regular updates to the AAIS Compliance Guide, a comprehensive resource of rate and form filing requirements by state, plus other product-related compliance information. This resource, provided free of additional charge to all insurers that use one or more AAIS programs, is especially valuable for companies that choose to adopt new forms and manuals at their own pace, or who want to file modifications of AAIS programs on their own.
- Consultation with companies about the process of adopting an AAIS program.
