627.0612 Administrative proceedings in rating determinations.
(1) In any proceeding to determine whether rates, rating plans, or other matters governed by this part comply with the law, the appellate court shall set aside a final order of the office if the office has violated s. 120.57(1)(k) by substituting its findings of fact for findings of an administrative law judge which were supported by competent substantial evidence.
(2) In an administrative hearing to determine whether an insurer’s rates, rating schedules, rating manuals, premium credits, discount schedules, surcharge schedules, or changes thereto, for property insurance comply with the law, in addition to any other findings of fact, findings on the following matters shall be considered findings of fact:
(a) Whether a factor or factors used in a rate filing or applied by the office are consistent with standard actuarial techniques or practices or are otherwise based on reasonable actuarial judgment.
(b) Whether a factor for underwriting profit and contingencies is reasonable or excessive.
(c) Whether the cost of reinsurance is reasonable or excessive.
(3) In an administrative hearing to determine whether an insurer’s rates, rating schedules, rating manuals, premium credits, discount schedules, surcharge schedules, or changes thereto, for property insurance comply with the law, a recommended order may be entered that approves, modifies, or rejects the requested change. A recommended order modifying the requested rate change shall recommend such change as is supported by the record in the case.
