Ins. Code Section 443.211
(a)If the receiver has claims under policies covered by reinsurance, the liability of the reinsurer to the receiver under the policies reinsured may not be diminished because of the insolvency of the insurer, regardless of any provisions in the reinsurance contract to the contrary, except under the following circumstances:
(1)a contract or other written agreement entered into before the delinquency proceeding that is otherwise permitted by law specifically provides another payee of the reinsurance in the event of the insolvency of the ceding insurer;
(2)the assuming insurer, under an assumption reinsurance agreement and with the consent of the direct insured, has assumed, as direct obligations of the assuming insurer, the policy obligations of the ceding insurer to the payees under policies and in substitution for the obligations of the ceding insurer to those payees; or
(3)a life and health insurance guaranty association has made the election to succeed to the rights and obligations of the insolvent insurer under a contract of reinsurance in accordance with the life and health guaranty association laws of this state or its domiciliary state or another applicable law, rule, order, or assignment contract, in which case payments shall be made directly to or at the direction of the guaranty association.
(b)Except as provided by Subsection (a), any reinsurance shall be payable to the receiver under a policy reinsured by the assuming insurer on the basis of claims:
(1)allowed under Section 443.253; or
(A)Chapter 462, 463, or 2602; or
(B)the guaranty associations of other states.
(c)The liquidator or receiver, as applicable, shall give written notice to affected reinsurers of the pendency of a claim against the receiver under a reinsured policy within a reasonable time after the claim is filed in the delinquency proceeding. During the pendency of the claim any affected reinsurer may:
(1)investigate the claim; and
(2)intervene, at the reinsurer’s own expense, in any proceeding where the claim is to be adjusted and assert any defense or defenses which it may deem available to the delinquent company, the liquidator, or the receiver.
(d)Subject to court approval, an expense incurred under Subsection (c)(1) or (2) shall be chargeable against the delinquent company as part of the expense of liquidation, to the extent of a proportionate share of the benefit which may accrue to the delinquent company solely as a result of the defense undertaken by the assuming insurer.
(e)If two or more assuming insurers are involved in the same claim and a majority in interest elect to intervene and assert a defense to a claim described by Subsection (c), an expense incurred under Subsection (c)(1) or (2) shall be apportioned in accordance with the terms of the reinsurance agreement as though the expense had been incurred by the ceding insurer.
(f)Nothing in this chapter shall be construed as authorizing the receiver, or other entity, to compel payment from a non-life reinsurer on the basis of estimated incurred but not reported losses or outstanding reserves, except outstanding reserves with respect to claims made pursuant to Section 443.255 and approved workers compensation claims filed under Section 443.252(d).
