States General Health Insurance Company

The States General Life Insurance Company closed its doors in 2005. The company was based in Fort Worth, Texas and was licensed to do business in twenty-five US states. When an insurance company becomes insolvent and is forced to close, its existing policies are transferred to other companies who will continue coverage. Such was the case with States General. States General had three major business lines, life insurance, major medical programs, and Medicare supplemental insurance. Each block of business was transferred to another insurance provider.

NOLHGA is the acronym for the National Organization of Life and Health Insurance Guaranty Associations, http://www.nolhga.com. These associations were established to protect policyholders from suffering losses as a result of the closure and/or insolvency of a member insurance company. These services are available in all 50 states and protect policyholders and their assigns and beneficiaries.

Most types of direct insurance policies are covered but only up to certain established limits. Policyholders must continue to make payments in order to keep their insurance in force. General regulations, rules and other frequently asked questions may be found by contacting the guaranty association in your state or visiting the NOLHGA website. A listing of state associations may also be found there.
