Department of Insurance Regulation 68, which implements New York's No-Fault law, was first promulgated in 1974. Effective September 1, 2001, the Insurance Department repealed the original (old) Regulation 68 and promulgated a revised (new) Regulation 68. The repealed Regulation 68 consisted of nineteen sections that addressed various aspects of the No-Fault reparations system. Many sections of the old Regulation are outdated and no longer applicable.

Sections 65.1 through 65.7 of the old Regulation contained the rules for No-Fault claims arising from accidents which occurred prior to December 1, 1977. Section 65.8 addressed transitional issues with limited effect after November 30, 1977, Chapter 320 of the Laws of 1991 (effective November 12, 1991), as amended by Chapter 484 of the Laws of 1992, elevated the maximum no-fault payment for loss of earnings from work (work loss) under mandatory personal injury protection (PIP) coverage from $1,000 to $2,000 per month, applicable to accidents arising out of the use or operation of a motor vehicle that occurred on and after November 12, 1991, and created a $25,000 Optional Basic Economic Loss (OBEL) coverage, which, pursuant to Section 5102(a)(5) of the Insurance Law, must be offered to all insureds. Section 65.9 contained rules applicable to filing and approval of motor vehicle insurance rates to be effective February 1, 1974.
