TAIPA Plan of Operations Section 50 Motor Vehicle Crime Prevention Authority Change in Pass Through Fee
Effective immediately, the Texas Legislature enacted Senate Bill 224 which increases the fee each insurer must pay to the Motor Vehicle Crime Prevention Authority from $4 to $5 per motor vehicle year.
Please note that the Texas Department of Insurance sent out Commissioner’s Bulletin # B-0006-23 on June 6, 2023. You can link to it at: https://www.tdi.texas.gov/bulletins/2023/B-0006-23.html .
By law, insurers must pay a fee to the MVCPA. TDI's rule (Title 28 Texas Administrative Code §5.205) allows—but does not require—insurers to recoup all or part of that fee from policyholders. Rule §5.205 requires insurers to submit a rate and rule filing if they will pass on any of the fee to policyholders. Insurers should review the bulletin for additional information.
