Information maintained by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process. Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public Acts soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the Guide.

Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes, statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect. If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes made to the current law.

(215 ILCS 5/) Illinois Insurance Code.

215 ILCS 5/456

    (215 ILCS 5/456) (from Ch. 73, par. 1065.3)
    Sec. 456. Making of rates. (1) All rates shall be made in accordance with the following provisions:
    (a) Due consideration shall be given to past and prospective loss experience within and outside this state, to catastrophe hazards, if any, to a reasonable margin for profit and contingencies, to dividends, savings or unabsorbed premium deposits allowed or returned by companies to their policyholders, members or subscribers, to past and prospective expenses both countrywide and those specially applicable to this state, to underwriting practice and judgment and to all other relevant factors within and outside this state;
    (b) The systems of expense provisions included in the rates for use by any company or group of companies may differ from those of other companies or groups of companies to reflect the requirements of the operating methods of any such company or group with respect to any kind of insurance, or with respect to any subdivision or combination thereof for which subdivision or combination separate expense provisions are applicable;
    (c) Risks may be grouped by classifications for the establishment of rates and minimum premiums. Classification rates may be modified to produce rates for individual risks in accordance with rating plans which measure variation in hazards or expense provisions, or both. Such rating plans may measure any differences among risks that have a probable effect upon losses or expenses;
    (d) Rates shall not be excessive, inadequate or unfairly discriminatory.
    A rate in a competitive market is not excessive. A rate in a noncompetitive market is excessive if it is likely to produce a long run profit that is unreasonably high for the insurance provided or if expenses are unreasonably high in relation to the services rendered.
    A rate is not inadequate unless such rate is clearly insufficient to sustain projected losses and expenses in the class of business to which it applies and the use of such rate has or, if continued, will have the effect of substantially lessening competition or the tendency to create monopoly in any market.
    Unfair discrimination exists if, after allowing for practical limitations, price differentials fail to reflect equitably the differences in expected losses and expenses. A rate is not unfairly discriminatory because different premiums result for policyholders with like exposures but different expenses, or like expenses but different loss exposures, so long as the rate reflects the differences with reasonable accuracy.
    (e) The rating plan shall contain a mandatory offer of a deductible applicable only to the medical benefit under the Workers' Compensation Act. Such deductible offer shall be in a minimum amount of at least $1,000 per accident.
    (f) Any rating plan or program shall include a rule permitting 2 or more employers with similar risk characteristics, who participate in a loss prevention program or safety group, to pool their premium and loss experience in determining their rate or premium for such participation in the program.
    (2) Except to the extent necessary to meet the provisions of subdivision (d) of subsection (1) of this Section, uniformity among companies in any matters within the scope of this Section is neither required nor prohibited.

215 ILCS 5/457

    (215 ILCS 5/457) (from Ch. 73, par. 1065.4)
    Sec. 457. Rate filings. (1) Beginning January 1, 1983, every company shall file with the Director every manual of classifications, every manual of rules and rates, every rating plan and every modification of the foregoing which it intends to use. Such filings shall be made not later than 30 days after they become effective. A company may satisfy its obligation to make such filings by adopting the filing of a licensed rating organization of which it is a member or subscriber, filed pursuant to subsection (2) of this Section, in total or by notifying the Director in what respects it intends to deviate from such filing. Any company adopting a pure premium filed by a rating organization pursuant to subsection (2) must file with the Director the modification factor it is using for expenses and profit so that the final rates in use by such company can be determined.
    (2) Beginning January 1, 1983, each licensed rating organization must file with the Director every manual of classification, every manual of rules and advisory rates, every pure premium which has been fully adjusted and fully developed, every rating plan and every modification of any of the foregoing which it intends to recommend for use to its members and subscribers, not later than 30 days after such manual, premium, plan or modification thereof takes effect. Every licensed rating organization shall also file with the Director the rate classification system, all rating rules, rating plans, policy forms, underwriting rules or similar materials, and each modification of any of the foregoing which it requires its members and subscribers to adhere to not later than 30 days before such filings or modifications thereof are to take effect. Every such filing shall state the proposed effective date thereof and shall indicate the character and extent of the coverage contemplated.
    (3) A filing and any supporting information made pursuant to this Section shall be open to public inspection after the filing becomes effective.

215 ILCS 5/458

    (215 ILCS 5/458) (from Ch. 73, par. 1065.5)
    Sec. 458. Disapproval of filings. (1) If within thirty days of any filing the Director finds that such filing does not meet the requirements of this Article, he shall send to the company or rating organization which made such filing a written notice of disapproval of such filing, specifying therein in what respects he finds that such filing fails to meet the requirements of this Article and stating when, within a reasonable period thereafter, such filing shall be deemed no longer effective. If the company or rating organization making the filing shall, prior to the expiration of the period prescribed in the notice, request a hearing, such filings shall be effective until the expiration of a reasonable period specified in any order entered thereon. If the rate resulting from such filing be unfairly discriminatory or materially inadequate, and the difference between such rate and the approved rate equals or exceeds the cost of making an adjustment, the Director shall in such notice or order direct an adjustment of the premium to be made with the policyholder either by refund or collection of additional premium. If the policyholder does not accept the increased rate, cancellation shall be made on a pro rata basis. Any policy issued pursuant to this subsection shall contain a provision that the premium thereon shall be subject to adjustment upon the basis of the filing finally approved.
    (2) If at any time subsequent to the applicable review period provided for in subsection (1) of this Section, the Director finds that a filing does not meet the requirements of this Article, he shall, after a hearing held upon not less than ten days written notice, specifying the matters to be considered at such hearing, to every company and rating organization which made such filing, issue an order specifying in what respects he finds that such filing fails to meet the requirements of this Article, and stating when, within a reasonable period thereafter, such filings shall be deemed no longer effective. Copies of said order shall be sent to every such company and rating organization. Said order shall not affect any contract or policy made or issued prior to the expiration of the period set forth in said order.
    (3) Any person or organization aggrieved with respect to any filing which is in effect may make written application to the Director for a hearing thereon, provided, however, that the company or rating organization that made the filing shall not be authorized to proceed under this subsection. Such application shall specify the grounds to be relied upon by the applicant. If the Director shall find that the application is made in good faith, that the applicant would be so aggrieved if his grounds are established, and that such grounds otherwise justify holding such a hearing, he shall, within thirty days after receipt of such application, hold a hearing upon not less than ten days written notice to the applicant and to every company and rating organization which made such filing.
    If, after such hearing, the Director finds that the filing does not meet the requirements of this Article, he shall issue an order specifying in what respects he finds that such filing fails to meet the requirements of this Article, and stating when, within a reasonable period thereafter, such filing shall be deemed no longer effective. Copies of said order shall be sent to the applicant and to every such company and rating organization. Said order shall not affect any contract or policy made or issued prior to the expiration of the period set forth in said order.

215 ILCS 5/459

    (215 ILCS 5/459) (from Ch. 73, par. 1065.6)
    Sec. 459. Rating organizations. (1) A corporation, an unincorporated association, a partnership or an individual, whether located within or outside this state, may make application to the Director for license as a rating organization for such kinds of insurance or subdivisions thereof as are specified in its application and shall file therewith (a) a copy of its constitution, its articles of agreement or association or its certificate of incorporation, and of its bylaws, rules and regulations governing the conduct of its business, (b) a list of its members and subscribers, (c) the name and address of a resident of this state upon whom notices or orders of the Director or process affecting such rating organization may be served and (d) a statement of its qualifications as a rating organization. If the Director finds that the applicant is competent, trustworthy and otherwise qualified to act as a rating organization and that its constitution, articles of agreement or association or certificate of incorporation, and its bylaws, rules and regulations governing the conduct of its business conform to the requirements of law, he shall issue a license specifying the kinds of insurance or subdivisions thereof for which the applicant is authorized to act as a rating organization. Every such application shall be granted or denied in whole or in part by the Director within sixty days of the date of its filing with him. Licenses issued pursuant to this Section shall remain in effect for three years unless sooner suspended or revoked by the Director. The fee for said license shall be twenty-five dollars. Licenses issued pursuant to this Section may be suspended or revoked by the Director, after hearing upon notice, in the event the rating organization ceases to meet the requirements of this subsection. Every rating organization shall notify the Director promptly of every change in (a) its constitution, its articles of agreement or association or its certificate of incorporation, and its bylaws, rules and regulations governing the conduct of its business, (b) its list of members and subscribers and (c) the name and address of the resident of this state designated by it upon whom notices or orders of the Director or process affecting such rating organization may be served.
    (2) Subject to rules and regulations which have been approved by the Director as reasonable, each rating organization shall permit any company, not a member, to be a subscriber to its rating services for any kind of insurance or subdivision thereof for which it is authorized to act as a rating organization. Notice of proposed changes in such rules and regulations shall be given to subscribers. Each rating organization shall furnish its rating services without discrimination to its members and subscribers. The reasonableness of any rule or regulation in its application to subscribers, or the refusal of any rating organization to admit a company as a subscriber, shall, at the request of any subscriber or any such company, be reviewed by the Director at a hearing held upon at least ten days' written notice to such rating organization and to such subscriber or company. If the Director finds that such rule or regulation is unreasonable in its application to subscribers, he shall order that such rule or regulation shall not be applicable to subscribers. If the rating organization fails to grant or reject a company's application for subscribership within thirty days after it was made, the company may request a review by the Director as if the application had been rejected. If the Director finds that the company has been refused admittance to the rating organization as a subscriber without justification, he shall order the rating organization to admit the company as a subscriber. If he finds that the action of the rating organization was justified, he shall make an order affirming its action.
    (3) No rating organization shall adopt any rule the effect of which would be to prohibit or regulate the payment of dividends, savings or unabsorbed premium deposits allowed or returned by companies to their policyholders, members or subscribers.
    (4) Cooperation among rating organizations or among rating organizations and companies in matters within the scope of this Article is hereby authorized, provided the filings resulting from such cooperation are subject to all the provisions of this Article which are applicable to filings generally. The Director may review such cooperative activities and practices and if, after a hearing, he finds that any such activity or practice is unfair or unreasonable or otherwise inconsistent with the provisions of this Article, he may issue a written order specifying in what respects such activity or practice is unfair or unreasonable or otherwise inconsistent with the provisions of this Article, and requiring the discontinuance of such activity or practice.
    (5) A rating organization may require members and subscribers to adhere to a rate classification system, rating rules, rating plans, policy forms, and underwriting rules or similar materials; however, no insurer may agree with any other insurer or with a rating organization to adhere to or use any rate or schedule rating plan. For the purposes of this Article, "rate" means the charge for insurance per unit of exposure, prior to any application of individual risk variations based on loss or expense considerations, or a consideration of both, and does not include minimum premiums.
    (6) Two or more insurers having a common ownership or operating in this State under common management or control may act in concert between or among themselves with respect to those activities authorized in this Article as if they were a single insurer.
    (7) The fact that 2 or more insurers consistently or intermittently use the same rates is not sufficient in itself to support a finding that an illegal agreement exists, and may be used only for the purpose of supplementing or explaining other direct evidence of the existence of any such agreement.

215 ILCS 5/460

    (215 ILCS 5/460) (from Ch. 73, par. 1065.7)
    Sec. 460. Competitive market; approval of rates.
    (a) Beginning January 1, 1983, a competitive market is presumed to exist unless the Director, after a hearing, determines that a reasonable degree of competition does not exist in the market and the Director issues a ruling to that effect. For purposes of this Article only, market shall mean the statewide workers' compensation and employers' liability lines of business. In determining whether a reasonable degree of competition exists, the Director shall consider relevant tests of workable competition pertaining to market structure, market performance and market conduct. Such tests may include, but need not be limited to, the following: size and number of firms actively engaged in the market, market shares and changes in market shares of firms, ease of entry and exit from a given market, underwriting restriction, and whether profitability for companies generally in the market is unreasonably high. The determination of competition involves the interaction of the various tests and the weight given to specific tests depends upon the particular situation and pattern of test results.
    In determining whether or not a competitive market exists, the Director shall monitor the degree of competition in this State. In doing so, he shall utilize existing relevant information, analytical systems and other sources; cause or participate in the development of new relevant information, analytical systems and other sources; or rely on some combination thereof. Such activities may be conducted internally within the Department of Insurance, in cooperation with other state insurance departments, through outside contractors, or in any other appropriate manner.
    (b) If the Director finds that a reasonable degree of competition does not exist in a market, he may require that the insurers in that market file supporting information in support of existing rates. If the Director believes that such rates may violate any of the requirements of this Article, he shall call a hearing prior to any disapproval. If the Director determines that a competitive market does not exist in the workers' compensation market as provided in a ruling pursuant to this Section, then every company must prefile every manual of classifications, rules, rates, rating plans, rating schedules, and every modification of the foregoing covered by such rule. Such filing shall be made at least 30 days prior to its taking effect, and such prefiling requirement shall remain in effect as long as there is a ruling in effect pursuant to this Section that a reasonable degree of competition does not exist.
    (c) The Director shall disapprove a rate if he finds that the rate is excessive, inadequate or unfairly discriminatory as defined in Section 456. An insurer whose rates have been disapproved shall be given a hearing upon a written request made within 30 days after the disapproval order.
    If the Director disapproves a rate, he shall issue an order specifying in what respects it fails to meet the requirements of this Article and stating when within a reasonable period thereafter such rate shall be discontinued for any policy issued or renewed after a date specified in the order. The order shall be issued within 30 days after the close of the hearing or within such reasonable time extension as the Director may fix. Such order may include a provision for premium adjustment for the period after the effective date of the order for policies in effect on such date.
    (d) Whenever an insurer has no legally effective rates as a result of the Director's disapproval of rates or other act, the Director shall on request of the insurer specify interim rates for the insurer that are high enough to protect the interest of all parties and may order that a specified portion of the premiums be placed in an escrow account approved by him. When new rates become legally effective, the Director shall order the escrowed funds or any overcharge in the interim rates to be distributed appropriately, except that refunds to policyholders that are de minimis shall not be required.

215 ILCS 5/461

    (215 ILCS 5/461) (from Ch. 73, par. 1065.8)
    Sec. 461. Appeal by minority.
    Any member of or subscriber to a rating organization may appeal to the Director from the action or decision of such rating organization in approving or rejecting any proposed change in or addition to the filings of such rating organization and the Director shall, after a hearing held upon not less than ten days' written notice to the appellant and to such rating organization, issue an order approving the action or decision of such rating organization or directing it to give further consideration to such proposal, or, if such appeal is from the action or decision of the rating organization in rejecting a proposed addition to its filings, he may, in the event he finds that such action or decision was unreasonable, issue an order directing the rating organization to make an addition to its filings, on behalf of its members and subscribers, in a manner consistent with his findings, within a reasonable time after the issuance of such order.
    If such appeal is based upon the failure of the rating organization to make a filing on behalf of such member or subscriber which is based on a system of expense provisions which differs, in accordance with the right granted in subdivision (b) of subsection (1) of Section 456, from the system of expense provisions included in a filing made by the rating organization, the Director shall, if he grants the appeal, order the rating organization to make the requested filing for use by the appellant. In deciding such appeal the Director shall apply the standards set forth in Section 456.

Every rating organization, and every company which does not adopt the rates of a rating organization, shall, within a reasonable time after receiving written request therefor, furnish to any insured affected by a rate made by it, or to the authorized representative of such insured, in readily understandable language, all pertinent information as to such rate as specified in rules adopted by the Department.
    Every rating organization, and every company which does not adopt the rates of a rating organization, shall provide within this state reasonable means whereby any person aggrieved by the application of its rating system may be heard, in person or by his authorized representative, on his written request to review the manner in which such rating system has been applied in connection with the insurance afforded him. If the rating organization or company fails to grant or reject such request within thirty days after it is made, the applicant may proceed in the same manner as if his application had been rejected. Any party affected by the action of such rating organization or such company on such request may, within thirty days after written notice of such action, appeal to the Director, who, after a hearing held upon not less than ten days' written notice to the appellant and to such rating organization or company, may affirm or reverse such action.

If the application of incorrect classifications, payrolls or any other factors of a rating system results in the payment by an insured of premiums in excess of the premiums that would have been paid utilizing the correct applications of classifications, payrolls or other factors of a rating system, the insurer shall refund to the insured the excessive premium paid for the period during which the incorrect application of classifications, payrolls or other factors of a rating system were applied.

    (3) If, after a hearing, the Director finds that the furnishing of such information or assistance involves any act or practice which is unfair or unreasonable or otherwise inconsistent with the provisions of this Article, he may issue a written order specifying in what respects such act or practice is unfair or unreasonable or otherwise inconsistent with the provisions of this Article, and requiring the discontinuance of such act or practice.
    (4) No company which makes its own filings nor any rating organization shall support its filings by statistics or adopt rate making recommendations, furnished to it by an advisory organization which has not complied with this Section or with an order of the Director involving such statistics or recommendations issued under subsection (3) of this Section. If the Director finds such company or rating organization to be in violation of this subsection he may issue an order requiring the discontinuance of such violation.

    (215 ILCS 5/466) (from Ch. 73, par. 1065.13)
    Sec. 466. Rate administration. (1) Recording and Reporting of Loss and Expense Experience.
    The Director shall promulgate reasonable rules and shall approve statistical plans, reasonably adapted to each of the rating systems on file with him, which may be modified from time to time and which shall be used thereafter by each company in the recording and reporting of its loss and countrywide expense experience, in order that the experience of all companies may be made available at least annually in such form and detail as may be necessary to aid him in determining whether rating systems comply with the standards set forth in Section 456. An approved statistical plan need not be adopted as a rule, but shall be made available for public inspection at the Department's principal office and a copy of the plan shall be filed with the Secretary of State. Such rules and plans may also provide for the recording and reporting of expense experience items which are specially applicable to this state and are not susceptible of determination by a prorating of countrywide expense experience. In promulgating such rules and approving plans, the Director shall give due consideration to the rating systems on file with him and in order that such rules and plans may be as uniform as is practicable among the several states, to the rules and to the form of the plans used for such rating systems in other states. No company shall be required to record or report any experience on an experience classification which it does not use in the making of its rates or to record or report its experience on any basis or statistical plan that differs from that which is regularly employed and used in the usual course of such company's business, nor shall any company be required to record or report its loss experience on a classification basis that is inconsistent with the rating system filed by it, nor shall it be required to report such experience to any rating organization of which it is not a member or subscriber, or to an agency operated by or subject to the control of such a rating organization, nor shall the Department's rules state that the insurer must record or report its experience in accordance with a uniform statistical plan which differs from that which is regularly employed and used in the usual course of such company's business. Any company not reporting such experience to a rating organization or other agency designated by the Director, shall report such experience to the Director. The Director may designate one or more rating organizations or other agencies to assist him in gathering all such experience and in making compilations thereof. The experience of any company filed with the Director shall be deemed confidential and shall not be revealed by the Director to any other company or other person, provided, however, that the Director may make compilations of all experience, including the experience of any such company, or of such experience and the compilation made by the designated rating organization or other agency. All such compilations, whether made by the Director or by any designated rating organization or other agency, shall be made available, subject to reasonable rules promulgated by the Director, to companies and rating organizations.
    (2) Interchange of Rating Plan Data
    Reasonable rules and plans may be promulgated by the Director for the interchange of data necessary for the application of rating plans.
    (3) Consultation with Other States
    In order to further uniform administration of rate regulatory laws, the Director and every company and rating organization may exchange information and experience data with insurance supervisory officials, companies and rating organizations in other states and may consult with them with respect to rate making and the application of rating systems.
    (4) Rules and Regulations
    The Director may make reasonable rules and regulations necessary to effect the purpose of this Article.

All companies licensed to write workers' compensation and employers' liability insurance in this State shall participate in a plan providing for the equitable apportionment among them of insurance which may be afforded applicants who are in good faith entitled to but who are unable to procure such insurance through ordinary methods. Companies must submit such a plan for the Director's approval within 60 days of the effective date of this amendatory Act of 1982. The rates to be used in such a plan and any future modification thereof must be submitted to the Director for approval at least 30 days prior to their effective date. Such rates shall reflect residual market experience to the extent it is actuarially appropriate. The Director shall disapprove any filing that does not meet the requirements of subparagraph (d) of paragraph (1) of Section 456 of this Article. A filing shall be deemed to meet such requirements unless disapproved by the Director within 30 days after the filing is made. In disapproving a filing made under this Section, the Director shall have the same authority and shall follow the same procedure as in disapproving a filing under Section 458. Notwithstanding any other provisions of this Article, rating organizations may make and file rates under this Section.

No insured named in a policy of insurance, nor any employee of such insured shall knowingly receive or accept, directly or indirectly, any such rebate, discount, abatement, credit or reduction of premium, or any such special favor or advantage or valuable consideration or inducement. Nothing in this Section shall be construed as prohibiting the payment of commissions or other compensation to duly licensed agents and brokers, nor as prohibiting any company from allowing or returning to its participating policyholders, members or subscribers, dividends, savings or unabsorbed premium deposits.

    The Director may suspend the license of any rating organization or company which fails to comply with an order of the Director within the time limited by such order, or any extension thereof which the Director may grant. The Director shall not suspend the license of any rating organization or company for failure to comply with an order until the time prescribed for filing a petition for review thereof as provided in Section 471 has expired or if such petition for review has been filed until such order has been affirmed. The Director may determine when a suspension of license shall become effective and it shall remain in effect for the period fixed by him, unless he modifies or rescinds such suspension, or until the order upon which such suspension is based is modified, rescinded or reversed.
    No license shall be suspended or revoked except upon a written order of the Director, stating his findings, made after a hearing held upon not less than ten days' written notice to such person or organization specifying the alleged violation.
