Agents of Record
(a)Unless otherwise prohibited, the supervisor, conservator, or receiver of an insurer shall provide to the insured’s agent of record a copy of each communication provided to an insured if, in the judgment of the supervisor, conservator, or receiver, providing the copy will serve to materially protect the interests of policyholders. The supervisor, conservator, or receiver may also request the assistance of any statewide association of insurance agents in providing to the association’s members information that, in the judgment of the supervisor, conservator, or receiver, may serve to materially protect policyholders’ interests.
(b)If the supervisor, conservator, or receiver sells a delinquent insurer’s policies to another insurer, the purchaser shall:

(2)conduct the purchaser’s business with the insured through the agent of record; and
(3)provide to the agent of record a written limited agency contract providing the terms that apply to the conduct of their business together.
(c)A limited agency contract provided under Subsection (b) must provide a level of commission that is reasonable, adequate, and nonconfiscatory.
(d)This subchapter does not prohibit the agent of record from renewing with another insurer an insurance policy purchased by an insurer from a delinquent insurer.

(1)a life, accident, or health insurance policy or contract delivered or issued for delivery by an insurer that is subject to any provision of a law specified in Section 841.002 (Applicability of Chapter and Other Law) or any provision of Chapter 882 (Mutual Life Insurance Companies), 884 (Stipulated Premium Insurance Companies), 887 (Provisions Applicable to Certain Mutual Assessment Companies), 888 (Burial Associations), or 982 (Foreign and Alien Insurance Companies);
