Captive Insurance Company

History of Florida Captive Insurance Law

Florida originally enacted legislation for captive insurance in 1982, which created provisions authorizing the creation of U.S. domiciled captive insurers by establishing operational criteria and standards.  In April 2012, Governor Scott signed HB1101 into law, which augmented these provisions by further specifying criteria for the formation, incorporation, coverage, capital and surplus, reporting, licensure and reinsurance of captive insurers.
