  • Informational Memorandum OIR-20-03M
    Understanding recommended COVID-19 prevention and treatment measures may disrupt normal business operations, OIR issued Informational Memorandum OIR-20-03M directing all insurers and entities regulated by OIR to review and update their Business Continuity Plans and/or Continuity of Operation Plans immediately. The plans must provide a framework for the continuation of company operations, including key insurance functions such as policy issuance, premium collection, claims adjustment and payment and policyholder service. The continuity plans should also account for DOH and CDC guidance surrounding COVID-19, including executive orders issued at the state and national level.

    Among other considerations, this Informational Memorandum provided guidance to regulated entities, including CCRCs, regarding electronic communications, teleworking, and utilizing electronic signatures. In addition, OIR granted a 30-day extension for any annual statements due to be filed with OIR by a regulated entity on or before May 1, 2020, including CCRCs.
