Filing authorization rules.

A carrier or health care benefit manager may authorize a third-party filer to file forms or rates on its behalf. For the purposes of this section, a "third-party filer" means a person or entity in the business of providing regulatory compliance services.
(1) If a carrier or health care benefit manager delegates filing authority to a third-party filer, each filing must include a letter as supporting documentation signed by an officer of the carrier or health care benefit manager authorizing the third-party filer to make filings on behalf of the carrier or health care benefit manager.
(2) The carrier or health care benefit manager may not delegate responsibility for the content of a filing to a third-party filer. The commissioner considers errors and omissions made by the third-party filer to be errors and omissions of the carrier or health care benefit manager.
(3) If a third-party filer has a pattern of making filings that do not comply with this chapter, the commissioner may reject a delegation of filing authority.
