Kansas Third Party Administrators Face New Bond Requirement

What Changed for Kansas Third Party Administrators?

A new bill was enacted in April of 2017 that requires a surety bond for certain third party administrators.



More specifically, the bill labeled SB 22 requires third party administrators for a life, annuity, or health insurance plan to be licensed and provide audited financial statements. If the administrator applies for a hardship exception, it may submit unaudited financial statements in which case the administrator also must post a surety bond equal to 10% of funds handled for the benefit of Kansas residents or $20,000, whichever is greater. All third party administrators for a self-insured plan for life, annuity, or health insurance for a government entity or a church must post a surety bond equal to $100,000 or 10% of the aggregate total amount of self-funded coverage under church plans or governmental plans handled in the State and all additional states in which the administrator is authorized to do business, whichever is greater.
