Data Call Development
For almost two years now, FLTA has been working with our regulators to help design a well-thought out data call to be used to capture both agency and underwriter information. While we all recognize that any requirement to gather and report data will be a burden, if not an outright “Pain in the Neck” – our providing good data is the price of having an accurate promulgated rate. So as an industry, we have supported the adoption of the new data call statute and coordinated many hours of live meetings, conference calls and discussion as we offered our comments and suggestions on what a good data call should include.
We involved agents, attorney-agents, and insurers at each stage in the development process. FLTA has worked hard to make certain that all of our members were kept informed in bulletins like this one, our newsletters, on the monthly Agent Calls, and a live presentation by Michael Schefstad and Peter Rice at the annual convention.
Please keep in mind that the information submitted is exempt from public records disclosure and the OIR will only release aggregate non-identifiable information. §626.84195, Fla. Stat. (2013).
We're in the final stages of the development process. OIR has incorporated most of our suggestions from the workshop hearing and the revised drafts are ready to go to the Governor & Cabinet for their review and adoption.
