Editor's Note (10.03.12) ~~  I've updated the document to bring it current through September 21, 2012.  There may be some amendments to it soon, in which case I'll re-post the revised version.  Those who would rely on the provisions of Regulation 64 are always best to check the official version, which is available via this link.

Back in March 2010 I posted a link to a single electronic copy of New York's Insurance Regulation 64 (11 NYCRR Part 216), which had resided on the then New York State Insurance Department's website.  That link was very, very popular ever since, generating a good deal of hits to this blog.  

Unfortunately, the recent transmogrification of the New York State Insurance and Banking Departments into the New York State Department of Financial Services has shattered all of this blog's NYS Insurance Department website links.  One would think some money could have been found even in New York's austerity budget for someone to point all old NYSID links to their new NYSDFS counterparts.  Would that have been so hard?

I'm working on restoring all broken links to Insurance Department Department of Financial Services web resources and citations on this blog.  For starters, I've created and uploaded to the filing cabinet of my own Google Site another single electronic copy of the very popular New York's Insurance Regulation 64 (11 NYCRR Part 216). You can find that electronic copy here or by clicking on its link in the New York Insurance Resources widget a bit down on the right side of this page.  I looked everywhere on the Department of Financial Services' new website for the Insurance Department's copy of Regulation 64 but alas, it wasn't there.  Imagine that -- no copy of the very regulation that proscribes unfair claims and settlement practices by insurers.  Some conspiracy theorists will likely posit that this was deliberate. 

In any event, this document now resides on a site that I control, and it claims to be current through October 21, 2011.

Thanks for the Link to Regulation 64. I can never find the regulation when I need it.

It's as easy as substituting "dfs.ny.gov/insurance" in the website address for "ins.state.ny.us".

Easy would have been the DFS re-pointing all old links to their new places, but thanks for the tip, Matthew. It works.

Since all old links resolve to a "Not Found" page with a www.dfs.ny.gov/ address, one needs only insert "insurance/" after the "gov/" to get to the desired page.
