The Tennessee Department of Commerce and Insurance (TDCI) has appointed NCCI as Administrator for the Tennessee Reinsurance Mechanism

Pursuant to the attached Order, the Commissioner of the TDCI for the state of Tennessee has terminated the Tennessee Workers Compensation Insurance Plan (TWCIP) and replaced it with NCCI’s Workers Compensation Insurance Plan, effective July 1, 2015. Reinsurance of TWCIP servicing carrier policies will be provided through the Tennessee Reinsurance Mechanism (TRM), by the former TWCIP participating companies, in the form of quota share reinsurance.

The reinsurance mechanism for the TWCIP, Tennessee Aggregate Excess of Loss Reinsurance Mechanism (TAELRM), has been converted to a quota share reinsurance mechanism similar to other NCCI-administered state assigned risk plans. Insurance companies participating in the TAELRM during the period from January 1, 1998, through June 30, 2015, are deemed participating companies in the quota share mechanism, which is the TRM. NCCI will provide additional information in future communications.

Refer to Circular POOL-TN-2015-01 for more information on the conversion of the TAELRM to NCCI's TRM.

Tennessee Reinsurance Mechanism

As previously reported in the October 5, 2015 NCCI Circular POOL-TN-2015-01, pursuant to Order No. 15-107, the commissioner of the Tennessee Department of Commerce & Insurance (TDCI) has terminated the Tennessee Workers Compensation Insurance Plan (TWCIP) and replaced it with NCCI’s Workers Compensation Insurance Plan, effective July 1, 2015.

This Order No. 15-107 also established the Tennessee Reinsurance Mechanism (TRM) for the quota share reinsurance run-off of servicing carrier policies with effective dates January 1, 1998, through June 30, 2015, which had been reinsured through the TWCIP’s Tennessee Aggregate Excess of Loss Reinsurance Mechanism (TAELRM), and designated NCCI as the TRM Reinsurance Administrator.

The insurance companies participating in the TAELRM during the period January 1, 1998, through June 30, 2015, have been deemed participating companies in the TRM quota share mechanism for the purpose of reinsuring TAELRM run-off activity reported by servicing carriers in calendar periods subsequent to June 30, 2015.

Refer to Circular POOL-TN-2015-02 for more information on the conversion of the TAELRM to NCCI’s TRM.
