The original intent of the rule was to avoid the complexities of an affiliated self-insurer structure where a parent company exists to hold the self-insurance authorization, was addressed by the clause "which do not have a parent company to hold the self-insurance authorization". A parent company able to, but not wanting to hold the self-insurance authorization, and wanting to execute a parental guaranty under Rule 69L-5.215, F.A.C., would be precluded from doing so under the existing language of Rule 69L-5.201(2), F.A.C. The added language will allow an affiliated self-insurer structure and utilization of the financial strength of a parent company for purposes of providing a parental guaranty for affiliated self-insurers under Rule 69L-5.215, F.A.C., where the parent company could but elects to not hold the self-insurance authorization.
