Confirmed Complaints: the number of confirmed complaints closed against the company for the line of insurance and year indicated. A complaint is confirmed if the department receives information indicating that a company committed any violation of an applicable state insurance law or regulation, a federal requirement the department has authority to enforce or the term or condition of an insurance policy or certificate. A complaint is also confirmed if the complaint and company's response, considered together, suggest that the company was in error or that the complainant had a valid reason for the complaint.

Complaint Ratios: the ratio, expressed as a percentage, is the number of closed confirmed complaints divided by the number of policies the company had in force for the line of insurance and year indicated.

Complaint Index: indicates how a company's ratio of the number of complaints to the number of policyholders compares to the average for all insurers. The index is calculated by dividing the company's percentage of complaints for a specific line of insurance by the company's percentage of the policies in force for the same line of insurance. The average index is 1.00. A number less than 1 indicates fewer complaints than average; a number greater than 1 indicates more complaints than average. For the most recent completed year, a given insurer's index may change over time, as policy count data is received by TDI. This will affect each insurer's percentage of the total.

Complaints against an insurance company are not part of the complaint tally above if the insurance company served only as a Third Party Administrator (TPA), a company hired simply to administer the paperwork of a health plan. Instead, they are included in the complaint record of the insurance company or HMO that hired the TPA. If a bonafide self-insured benefit plan hired the TPA, no complaint numbers are recorded as a part of the company/TPA's profile. Neither are profiles available for self-insured plans, as such plans are regulated under federal law.
