Arizona law requires Life and Health Administrators operating in this state to be registered with the Arizona Department of Insurance, unless they are exempt by statute (A.R.S. §20-485.12 et seq.). Life and Health Administrators are more commonly referred to as third party administrators (TPA).

In Arizona, the TPA designation does not apply to those persons acting as administrators for property and casualty or workers’ compensation claims handling; they must be licensed as “adjusters” (A.R.S. §20-321).
