3903.82 Annual report.

(A) Each domestic insurer shall, on or prior to the first day of March of every year, prepare and submit to the superintendent of insurance a report on its RBC levels as of the end of the calendar year just ended, in a form and containing such information as is required by the RBC instructions. In addition, every domestic insurer shall file its RBC report as follows:

(1) With the NAIC, in accordance with the RBC instructions;

(2) With the insurance regulatory authority of any other state in which the insurer is authorized to do business, if the insurance regulatory authority of that state has sent a written request to the insurer for the RBC report. The insurer shall file an RBC report in that state no later than the later of:

(a) Fifteen days after the insurer's receipt of the insurance regulatory authority's request for the RBC report;

(b) Prior to the first day of March.

(B)

(1) A life or health insurer's RBC levels shall be determined in accordance with the formula set forth in the RBC instructions. The formula shall take the following risks into account, and may adjust for the covariance between these risks:

(a) Asset risk;

(b) Insurance risk;

(c) Interest rate risk;

(d) All other business risks and such other relevant risks as are set forth in the RBC instructions.

(2) A property and casualty insurer's RBC levels shall be determined in accordance with the formula set forth in the RBC instructions, applying the factors in the manner set forth in the RBC instructions. The formula shall take the following risks into account, and may adjust for the covariance between these risks:

(a) Asset risk;

(b) Credit risk;

(c) Underwriting risk;

(d) All other business risks and such other relevant risks as are set forth in the RBC instructions.

(C) If a domestic insurer files an RBC report that is inaccurate in the judgment of the superintendent, the superintendent shall adjust the RBC report to correct the inaccuracy and then shall provide a copy of the adjusted RBC report to the insurer. The superintendent shall also provide the insurer with a statement of the reasons for any adjustment.

(D) In enacting sections 3903.81 to 3903.93 of the Revised Code, the general assembly finds all of the following:

(1) An excess of capital over the amount produced by the risk-based capital requirements of sections 3903.81 to 3903.93 of the Revised Code, and the formulas, schedules, and instructions referenced in sections 3903.81 to 3903.93 of the Revised Code, is desirable in the business of insurance.

(2) Insurers, accordingly, should seek to maintain capital above the RBC levels required under sections 3903.81 to 3903.93 of the Revised Code.

(3) Additional capital is used and is useful in the insurance business, helping to secure an insurer against various risks inherent in, or affecting, the business of insurance, which risks are not accounted for or are only partially measured by the risk-based capital requirements contained in sections 3903.81 to 3903.93 of the Revised Code.
