626.863 Claims referrals to independent adjusters.
(1) An insurer may not knowingly refer any claim or loss for adjustment in this state to any person purporting to be or acting as an independent adjuster unless the person is currently licensed as an all-lines adjuster and appointed as an independent adjuster under this code.
(2) Before referring any claim or loss, the insurer shall ascertain from the department whether the proposed independent adjuster is currently licensed as an all-lines adjuster and appointed as an independent adjuster. Having ascertained that a particular person is so licensed and appointed, the insurer may assume that he or she will continue to be so licensed and appointed until the insurer has knowledge, or receives information from the department, to the contrary.
(3) This section does not apply to catastrophe or emergency adjusters as provided in this part.
