Brown Signs Measure Aimed at Increasing State Department of Insurance’s Processing Efficiency
Gov. Jerry Brown (D) has signed a bill (AB 1515) that makes changes to the state's insurance code in an effort to increase the state Department of Insurance's processing efficiency. Under the law, the code will require interest to be applied to certain disability claims when payments are made more than 30 days after the claim is received. In addition, it calls for an update to DOI's contact information that is included in notices and consumer disclosures. The measure was sponsored by Insurance Commissioner Dave Jones (D).
