B. Classes of Business for Which Separation of Assets Not Required. Notwithstanding Regulation .05A(7) of this chapter, a ceding insurer may hold assets supporting reserves without segregating the assets for the following classes of business:

(1) Health insurance—long-term care or long-term disability;

(2) Traditional non-par permanent;

(3) Traditional par permanent;

(4) Adjustable premium permanent;

(5) Indeterminate premium permanent;

(6) Universal life fixed premium with no dump-in premiums allowed; and

(7) Any other class of business that does not have a significant credit quality risk, reinvestment risk, or disintermediation risk.

C. Formula for Determining Reserve Interest Rate Adjustment.

(1) The associated formula for determining the reserve interest rate adjustment shall be a formula that:

(a) Reflects the ceding insurer's investment earnings; and

(b) Incorporates all realized and unrealized gains and losses reflected in the statutory statement.

(2) The following is an acceptable formula:

Rate = [2(I+CG)] divided by [X + Y - I - CG]

(3) In the formula under §C(2) of this regulation:

(a) I is the net investment income;

(b) CG is capital gains less capital losses;

(c) X is the current year cash and investment assets plus investment income due and accrued less borrowed money; and

(d) Y is the same as X, but for the prior year.
