  376.742.  Director, powers and duties. — 1.  In addition to the duties and powers enumerated elsewhere in sections 376.715 to 376.758, the director shall:

  (1)  Upon request of the board of directors, provide the association with a statement of the premiums in this and any other appropriate states for each member insurer;

  (2)  When an impairment is declared and the amount of the impairment is determined, serve a demand upon the impaired insurer to make good the impairment within a reasonable time.  Notice to the impaired insurer shall constitute notice to its shareholders, if any.  The failure of the impaired insurer to promptly comply with such demand shall not excuse the association from the performance of its powers and duties under the provisions of sections 376.715 to 376.758;

  (3)  In any liquidation or rehabilitation proceeding involving a domestic insurer, be appointed as the liquidator or rehabilitator.

  2.  The director may suspend or revoke, after notice and hearing, the certificate of authority to transact business in this state of any member insurer which fails to pay an assessment when due or fails to comply with the plan of operation.  As an alternative the director may levy a forfeiture on any member insurer which fails to pay an assessment when due.  Such forfeiture shall not exceed five percent of the unpaid assessment per month, but no forfeiture shall be less than one hundred dollars per month.

  3.  Any action of the board of directors or the association may be appealed to the director by any member insurer if such appeal is taken within sixty days of the action being appealed.  If a member company is appealing an assessment, the amount assessed shall be paid to the association and available to meet association obligations during the pendency of an appeal.  If the appeal on the assessment is upheld, the amount paid in error or excess shall be returned to the member company.  Any final action or order of the director shall be subject to judicial review in a court of competent jurisdiction.

  4.  The liquidator, rehabilitator, or conservator of any impaired insurer may notify all interested persons of the effect of sections 376.715 to 376.758.

  5.  To aid in the detection and prevention of member insurer insolvencies or impairments, the director shall:

  (1)  Notify the commissioners of all the other states, territories of the United States and the District of Columbia when he takes any of the following actions against a member insurer:

  (a)  Revocation of license;

  (b)  Suspension of license; or

  (c)  Makes any formal order that such member insurer restricts its premium writing, obtain additional contributions to surplus, withdraw from the state, reinsure all or any part of its business, or increase capital, surplus, or any other account for the security of policy owners, contract owners, certificate holders, or creditors.



Such notice shall be mailed to all commissions within thirty days following the action taken or the date on which such action occurs;

  (2)  Report to the board of directors when he has taken any of the actions set forth in subdivision (1) of this subsection or has received a report from any other commissioner indicating that any such action has been taken in another state.  Such report to the board of directors shall contain all significant details of the action taken or the report received from another commissioner;

  (3)  Report to the board of directors when he has reasonable cause to believe from any examination, whether completed or in process, of any member company that such company may be an impaired or insolvent insurer;

  (4)  Furnish to the board of directors the NAIC Insurer Regulatory Information Service (IRIS) ratios and listings of companies not included in the ratios developed by the National Association of Insurance Commissioners, and the board may use the information contained therein in carrying out its duties and responsibilities under this section.  Such report and the information contained therein shall be kept confidential by the board of directors until such time as made public by the director or other lawful authority.

  6.  The director may seek the advice and recommendations of the board of directors concerning any matter affecting his duties and responsibilities regarding the financial condition of member insurers and health maintenance organizations seeking admission to transact insurance business in this state.
