On April 17, 2023, the Texas Department of Insurance (TDI) issued Commissioner's Bulletin # B-0003-23 to implement the 2023 HelpInsure.com price comparisons data call for insurers writing personal automobile and residential property policies in Texas.
HelpInsure.com is a resource for Texas consumers who are shopping for personal automobile or residential property insurance, and Insurance Code Section 32.102 requires that the TDI provide this information.
The data call applies to insurers who are in one of the top-25 national groups with more than $1 million in direct written premiums in Texas. These insurers must also include data from all business issued and processed through nonaffiliated companies, such as a county mutual.
The TDI will be notifying insurers by email if they fit this criteria, and insurers in the top-25 national groups that are not writing new business must confirm this in writing to the TDI. The TDI also encourages all other property and casualty insurers to participate, but participation is optional for companies that do not receive the notification.
The Commissioner's Bulletin outlines general instructions and additional information for this data call. Data is due to the TDI by May 19, 2023, for rates effective June 1, 2023.
If you have any questions regarding this data call, please contact Jonathan Porras by email at DataCall@tdi.texas.gov or by phone at 512-676-6702.
