In June 2011, Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam signed into law legislation that fully-updated the state’s captive insurance statute. In addition to permitting single parent and groups captives, the new statute permits the licensing of additional captive structures, including:

  • Incorporated Cell Captives
  • Branch Captives
  • Special Purpose Financial Captives
  • Employee Benefits Captives
  • Medical Stop-Loss Captives

The law will also permit Tennessee-based companies that qualify as workers’ compensation self-insurers to fund this risk through a captive insurance company. Please click here to access the complete text of the Tennessee’s current captive law.
