SECTION 902
Premium financing by an insurer or subsidiary.
F.S. 627.902
627.902 Premium financing by an insurer or subsidiary.
(1) An insurer, a subsidiary of an insurer, or a corporation under substantially the same management or control as an authorized insurer or group of authorized insurers may finance property, casualty, surety, and marine insurance premiums on policies issued or business produced by such insurer or insurers; however, any such insurer, subsidiary, or corporation or group of insurers that charges a total service charge per year or rate of interest which is substantially more than that provided in s. 627.901 shall be subject to part XV of this chapter. Notwithstanding any other provision of law, an insurer, a subsidiary of an insurer, or a corporation under substantially the same management or control as an authorized insurer or group of authorized insurers may charge one-half of the additional charge provided in s. 627.840, and the charges provided in s. 627.841.
(2) Nothing in this part or in part XV disallows or otherwise applies to a discount for any insured who pays the entire premium for the entire policy term at the inception of the term if the discount is found to be actuarially justified by the office and approved by the office pursuant to the provisions of part I. Such actuarially justified and approved discount shall not be deemed a component of or related to premium financing.
