(a) The amount of the reserve required by Section 1303.151 is based on the amount of liability remaining under outstanding residential service contracts written in this state by the residential service company, as determined by multiplying the total number of months remaining on all of those contracts by the pro rata monthly contract charge.

(b) The amount of the reserve must be equal to the lesser of:

(1) an amount equal to the amount of remaining liability multiplied by the ratio of direct losses incurred by the residential service company to contract fees earned by the company during the preceding calendar year;  or

(2) an amount equal to 50 percent of the amount of remaining liability.

(c) For purposes of this chapter, to the extent a residential service company uses a reimbursement insurance policy described by Section 1303.151(b) to insure an outstanding residential service contract written in this state, the company's reserve is not required to include a contract fee on the residential service contract.

(d) If a residential service company's reimbursement insurance policy is issued by a captive insurance company as defined by Section 964.001, Insurance Code, the residential service company shall maintain a funded reserve of at least 25 percent of the reserve amount described by Subsection (a).
