    Bill Summary

    This bill specifies that TCA Titles 50 and 56 provide the sole and exclusive statutory remedies and sanctions applicable to an insurer, person, or entity required to be licensed, permitted, or authorized to do business under Title 56 for alleged breach of an insurance contract or for alleged unfair or deceptive acts or practices. This bill further specifies that it does not eliminate or otherwise affect any statutory remedy or sanction referenced in Title 50 or Title 56.

    TCA Title 50 contains laws governing employees and employers, such as the Workers' Compensation Law and the Employment Security Law. TCA Title 56 contains the laws governing insurance.

    ON MARCH 28, 2011, THE HOUSE ADOPTED AMENDMENT #1 AND PASSED HOUSE BILL 1189, AS AMENDED.

    AMENDMENT #1 rewrites this bill to clarify that title 50 and title 56 provide the sole and exclusive statutory remedies and sanctions applicable to an insurer, person, or entity licensed, permitted, or authorized to do business under title 56 for alleged breach of, or for alleged unfair or deceptive acts or practices in connection with, a contract of insurance. This amendment specifies that it does not eliminate or otherwise affect any:

    (1) Remedy, cause of action, right to relief or sanction available under common law;
    (2) Right to declaratory, injunctive or equitable relief, whether provided under statutory law or the Tennessee Rules of Civil Procedure; or
    (3) Statutory remedy, cause of action, right to relief or sanction referenced in title 50 or title 56.

    This amendment defines "contract of insurance" as an agreement by which one party, for a consideration, promises to pay money or its equivalent, or to do some act of value to the assured, upon the destruction or injury, loss or damage of something in which the other party has an insurable interest.

    ON APRIL 4, 2011, THE SENATE SUBSTITUTED HOUSE BILL 1189 FOR SENATE BILL 1912 AND RESET HOUSE BILL 1189.
