28-44-201. Term of insurance. (1) Credit insurance provided by a creditor may be subject to the furnishing of evidence of insurability satisfactory to the insurer. Whether or not such evidence is required, the term of the insurance shall commence no later than when the debtor becomes obligated to the creditor or when the debtor applies for the insurance, whichever is later, except as follows:
(a) If any required evidence of insurability is not furnished until more than thirty (30) days after the term would otherwise commence, the term may commence on the date when the insurer determines the evidence to be satisfactory; or
(b) If the creditor provides insurance not previously provided covering debts previously created, the term may commence on the effective date of the policy.
(2) The originally scheduled term of the insurance shall extend at least until the due date of the last scheduled payment of the debt except as follows:
(a) If the insurance relates to an open-end consumer credit account, the term need only extend until the payment of the debt under the account and may be sooner terminated after at least thirty (30) days notice to the debtor; or
(b) If the debtor is advised in writing that the insurance will be written for a specified shorter time, the term need only extend until the end of the specified time.
(3) The term of the insurance shall not extend more than fifteen (15) days after the originally scheduled due date of the last scheduled payment of the debt unless it is extended without additional cost to the debtor or as an incident to a deferral, refinancing, or consolidation.
