Exempt Commercial Insured/Industrial Insured Exemption

An insured who procures the insurance of any risk or risks by use of the services of a full-time employee acting as an insurance manager or buyer or the services of a regularly and continuously retained qualified insurance consultant.

Understanding Exempt Commercial Insured/Industrial Insured Exemption
An admitted insurance carrier is backed by a specific state. An admitted carrier can be admitted in one state but not another. To be an admitted carrier, an insurance company must comply with all of the regulations set by the state that has admitted them.
Working with admitted carriers provides added benefits to consumers. When purchasing policies from admitted carriers, consumers often experience the omission of certain fees and taxes. Consumers also have the right to appeal to the state if policies have been handled improperly. This sets admitted carriers apart from non-admitted insurance carriers.
