627.101 When filing becomes effective; workers' compensation and employer's liability insurances.--
(1) The office shall review filings as to workers' compensation and employer's liability insurances as soon as reasonably possible after they have been made in order to determine whether they meet the applicable requirements of this part. If the office determines that part of a rate filing does not meet the applicable requirements of this part, it may reject so much of the filing as does not meet these requirements, and approve the remainder of the filing.
(2) The office shall specifically approve the filing before it becomes effective, unless the office has concluded it to be in the public interest to hold a public hearing to determine whether the filing meets the requirements of this chapter and has given notice of such hearing to the insurer or rating organization that made the filing, and in which case the effectiveness of the filing shall be subject to the further order of the office made as provided in s. 627.111 If the office specifically disapproves the filing, the provisions of subsection (4) shall apply.
(3) An insurer or rating organization may, at the time it makes a filing with the office, request a public hearing thereon. In such event, the office shall give notice of the hearing.
(4) If the office disapproves a filing, it shall promptly give notice of such disapproval to the insurer or rating organization that made the filing, stating the respects in which it finds that the filing does not meet the requirements of this chapter. If the office approves a filing, it shall give prompt notice thereof to the insurer or rating organization that made the filing, and in which case the filing shall become effective upon such approval or upon such subsequent date as may be satisfactory to the office and the insurer or rating organization that made the filing.
