Whenever the Director of the Department of Consumer and Business Services determines from any showing or statement made to the director or from any examination made by the director that the assets of a domestic insurer are less than its liabilities plus required capitalization, the director may proceed immediately under the provisions of ORS chapter 734 or the director may allow the insurer a period of time, not to exceed 90 days, in which to make good the amount of the impairment with cash or authorized investments.
If the amount of any such impairment is not made good within the time prescribed by the director under subsection (1) of this section, the director shall proceed under the provisions of ORS chapter 734.
An order directing an insurer to cure an impairment is confidential as provided in ORS 705.137 (Information that is confidential or not subject to disclosure), for such time as the director considers proper but not exceeding the time prescribed by the director for making the amount of the impairment good. If the director determines that the public interest in disclosure outweighs the public interest in protecting or salvaging the solvency of the insurer, the director may make the order available for public inspection.
