Non-Admitted Insurer (Market)
What is an Non-Admitted Insurer (Market)?
A company not licensed to do business in a particular state. In case of insolvency, the policyholder or claimant is not covered under the state’s insurance guaranty association.
Understanding Non-Admitted Insurer (Market)
Unlike an admitted carrier, non-admitted carriers are not backed by the state. They are not required to sell policies that adhere to the same standards as admitted carriers. However, non-admitted carriers are often still regulated by states they do business in.
Due to these less rigid standards, non-admitted carriers have more flexibility when designing coverage, selling policies, and writing risks. Companies that are struggling to find coverage in the admitted market often have more success in the non-admitted market.
