Oklahoma Enacts E-Delivery Legislation
Policyholders in 21 States can Access Insurance Information through E-Card, E-Delivery and E-Posting
Oklahoma is the most recent state to allow insurers to conduct policyholder communications digitally. With SB 372 Oklahoma insurers will have the ability to meet the increased demand by consumers who want to do business electronically. Over the past several years Oklahoma and 20 other states have enacted legislation that expand access to insurance information by adopting electronic posting of insurance policies, electronic delivery of insurance information and allowing drivers to use electronic proof of insurance.
PCI is a strong advocate for new laws and regulations that will give insurance customers more choice, convenience and flexibility in managing their insurance. Now there is a growing number of states that are embracing the idea of allowing consumers to have greater electronic access to their insurance information.
Currently 46 states have ecard laws or regulations enabling consumers to electronically show proof of insurance, 35 states allow electronic delivery of insurance documents and 25 states allow insurance documents to be posted and accessed on a website. The following outlines the progress being made on this issue.
