An insurer is exempt from the requirements of this 12 subsection if: 13 a. The insurer has annual direct written and unaffiliated 14 assumed premium, including international direct and assumed 15 premium, but excluding premiums reinsured with the Federal Crop 16 Insurance Corporation and the National Flood Insurance Program, 17 of less than $500 million; or 18 b.

If an insurer is: 25 a. Exempt under sub-subparagraph 1.a., but the insurance 26 group of which the insurer is a member is not exempt under sub 27 subparagraph 1.b., the ORSA summary report must include every 28 insurer within the insurance group. The insurer may satisfy this 29 requirement by submitting more than one ORSA summary report for 30 any combination of insurers if any combination of reports 31 includes every insurer within the insurance group. 32 b. Not exempt under sub-subparagraph 1.a., but the 33 insurance group of which it is a member is exempt under sub 34 subparagraph 1.b., the insurer must submit to the office the 35 ORSA summary report applicable only to that insurer. 36 3. The office may require an exempt insurer to maintain a 37 risk management framework, conduct an ORSA, and file an ORSA 38 summary report: 39 a. Based on unique circumstances, including, but not 40 limited to, the type and volume of business written, ownership 41 and organizational structure, federal agency requests, and 42 international supervisor requests; 43 b. If the insurer has risk-based capital for a company 44 action level event pursuant to s. 624.4085(3), meets one or more 45 of the standards of an insurer deemed to be in hazardous 46 financial condition as defined in rules adopted by the 47 commission pursuant to s. 624.81(11), or exhibits qualities of 48 an insurer in hazardous financial condition as determined by the 49 office; or 50 c. If the office determines it is in the best interest of 51 the state. 52 4. If an exempt insurer becomes disqualified for an 53 exemption because of changes in premium as reported on the most 54 recent annual statement of the insurer or annual statements of 55 the insurers within the insurance group of which the insurer is 56 a member, the insurer must comply with the requirements of this 57 section effective 1 year after the year in which the insurer 58 exceeded the premium thresholds. 59 (e) Waiver.—An insurer that does not qualify for an 60 exemption under paragraph (d) may request a waiver from the 61 office based upon unique circumstances. If the insurer is part 62 of an insurance group with insurers domiciled in more than one 63 state, the office must coordinate with the lead state and with 64 the other domiciliary regulators in deciding whether to grant a 65 waiver. In deciding whether to grant a waiver, the office may 66 consider: 67 1. The type and volume of business written by the insurer. 68 2. The ownership and organizational structure of the 69 insurer. 70 3. Any other factor the office considers relevant to the 71 insurer or insurance group of which the insurer is a member. 72 73 A waiver granted pursuant to this paragraph is valid until 74 withdrawn by the office.
