§1043. Residual market plans
A. After consultation with insurance companies authorized to issue motor vehicle insurance in this state, the commissioner of insurance shall approve a reasonable plan for insuring commercial motor vehicles, including garage liability insurance, called the Commercial Automobile Insurance Procedures and a separate reasonable assigned risk plan for insuring private passenger automobiles and other motor vehicles, called the Louisiana Automobile Insurance Plan. These plans shall provide insurance to those who are in good faith entitled to but are unable to procure such policies through ordinary methods. The Louisiana Automobile Insurance Plan shall not subsidize losses or participate in the profits of the members of the Commercial Automobile Insurance Procedures. All actuarially adequate rates for insurance provided by the plans shall be approved by the commissioner of insurance. All insurers writing insurance for commercial motor vehicle insurance, private passenger automobiles, or other motor vehicles in the state shall be members of the plans authorized by this Section and share in the administrative expenses for the operation of the plans based on the market share of premiums for the preceding calendar year. The exceptions provided in R.S. 32:1041(A) shall not apply to this Section.
B. Any applicant for any such policy, any person insured under any such plan, and any insurance company affected may appeal to the commissioner of insurance from any ruling or decision of the manager or committee designated to operate such plan. Any person aggrieved hereunder by any order or act of the commissioner of insurance may, within ten days after notice thereof, file a petition in the district court of the parish of East Baton Rouge or in the district court of the domicile of the aggrieved person, for a review thereof. The court shall summarily hear the petition and may make any appropriate order or decree.
