Regulatory Action

Statute provides authority for the State Risk Manager to create rules and standards programs should follow for management and operations, solvency (including frequency of actuarial studies and claims audits), and contracts between the programs and private businesses, including contracts with third party administrators.

To ensure standards are followed the State Risk Manager may conduct reviews and investigations as necessary.

Order to cease and desist

If programs do not meet standards, the state risk manager may issue an order to cease and desist from the violation or practice (RCW 48.62.091 (3)).
