Tex. Occ. Code Section 2307.004
Contractual Conditions


An insurer that owns an interest in a repair facility may use only one favored facility agreement.


Except as otherwise provided by this subsection, the terms under which the insurer enters into a favored facility agreement must be identical for all repair facilities, including a tied repair facility. An insurer may vary the terms as necessary to implement technical differences required by geographical factors or other legitimate business factors.


Except as provided by Subsection (d), an insurer may not cancel a favored facility agreement until the expiration of the 30th day after the date on which the insurer provides notice to the repair facility of the insurer’s intent to cancel the agreement. The insurer shall include with the notice a statement explaining the reason for the cancellation of the agreement.


An insurer may summarily cancel a favored facility agreement with a repair facility if the insurer, a policyholder of the insurer, or another beneficiary under the insurer’s policy establishes reasonable grounds to believe that the repair facility is fraudulent in its dealings with the insurer or the policyholder or other beneficiaries under the insurer’s policy.
