Ins. Code Section 443.015
Approval and Payment of Expenses
(a)The receiver may pay any expenses under contracts, leases, employment agreements, or other arrangements entered into by the insurer prior to receivership, as the receiver deems necessary for the purposes of this chapter. The receiver is not required to pay any expenses that the receiver determines are not necessary, and may reject any contract pursuant to Section 443.013.
(b)Receivership expenses other than those described in Subsection (a) must be paid in accordance with Subsections (c)-(f).
(c)The receiver shall submit to the receivership court an application pursuant to Section 443.007 to approve:
(1)the terms of compensation of each special deputy or contractor with respect to which the total amount of the compensation is reasonably expected by the receiver for the duration of the delinquency proceeding to exceed $250,000, or another amount established by the receivership court; and
(2)any other anticipated expense in excess of $25,000, or another amount established by the receivership court.
(d)The receiver may, as the receiver deems appropriate, submit an application to approve any compensation, anticipated expenses, or incurred expenses not described by Subsection (c)(1).
(e)The receiver may pay any expenses not requiring receivership court approval and any expenses approved by the rehabilitation or liquidation order as the expenses are incurred.
(f)The approval of expenses by the receivership court does not prejudice the right of the receiver to seek any recovery, recoupment, disgorgement, or reimbursement of fees based on contract or causes of action recognized in law or in equity.
(g)On a quarterly basis, or as otherwise provided by the receivership court, the receiver shall submit to the receivership court a report summarizing the expenses incurred during the period.
(h)Receivership court approval may not be required to pay expenses incurred by the receiver in connection with the appeal of an order of the receivership court.
(i)All expenses of receivership shall be paid from the assets of the insurer, except as provided by this subsection. In the event that the property of the insurer does not contain sufficient cash or liquid assets to defray the expenses incurred, the commissioner may advance funds from the account established under Section 443.304(c). Any amounts advanced shall be repaid to the account out of the first available money of the insurer.
