Policyholder Information

Company Overview

Bankers Commercial Life (BCL) focused primarily on marketing group accident and individual guaranteed renewable medical and surgical products. There was a shift to marketing Medicare Supplement policies as a primary line of business in 1998. The company was domiciled in Texas and was licensed in Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Louisiana, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Texas, and Utah. BCL’s main office was located in Dallas.

In May 2000, BCL was placed into receivership with a liquidation order issued June 10, 2000. For a number of years, the guaranty associations administered BCL's business through United Teacher Associates Insurance Company (UTA) and later through New Era Life Insurance Company. In 2002, the state life and health insurance guaranty associations helped arrange for Philadelphia American Life Insurance Company to assume all of BCL's business.

Policy & Claims Administration

Policies of an insolvent company are often transferred to a financially sound insurance company. If policies are not transferred to another company, the policies are continued and claims administered by either the guaranty associations or a third-party administrator (TPA) working on behalf of the associations. Please contact the company/TPA listed below or the guaranty association in your state of residence for more information about your policy.
