TDI Seeks Feedback on TWIA Claim Handling Rule Changes

The Texas Department of Insurance (TDI) issued a bulletin seeking comments on the informal draft of changes to TWIA claims rules. The changes implement parts of Senate Bill 615 and House Bills 1900 and 1944 passed by the 86th Texas Legislature this year.

The draft changes to the rules are related to:

  • Supplemental claim payments;
  • Replacement cost claim payments; and
  • Extensions of claim deadlines.

TWIA policyholders, members, and other stakeholders are encouraged to submit their comments on the informal draft rules to Marianne Baker in the TDI Property and Casualty Lines Office at PropertyCasualty@tdi.texas.gov. The comment period will close at 5:00 p.m. CT on July 31, 2019. For questions and additional information, please call (512) 676-6710.
