TRADE PRACTICES AND FRAUDS
41-1317. Fictitious groups. (1) No insurer, whether an authorized insurer or an unauthorized insurer, shall make available through any rating plan or form, property, casualty or surety insurance to any firm, corporation, or association of individuals, any preferred rate or premium based upon any fictitious grouping of such firm, corporation, or individuals. For the purposes of this section a "fictitious" group is one in which members of such group do not have a common insurable interest as to the subject of the insurance and the risk or risks insured or to be insured.
(2) No form or plan of insurance covering any group or combination of persons or risks shall be written or delivered within or outside of Idaho to cover Idaho persons or risks at any preferred rate or form other than that offered to persons not in such group and the public generally, unless such form, plan or policy and the rates or premiums to be charged therefor have been submitted to and approved by the director as not in conflict with subsection (1) above, and section 41-1405 (rate standards), Idaho Code.
(3) Nothing in this section shall apply to workmen’s compensation, life or disability insurance or to annuity contracts; nor to any insurer which restricts its insurance coverages to members of a particular association or organization with which the insurer is directly affiliated; nor to credit unemployment insurance indemnifying a creditor for installment or other periodic payments on indebtedness becoming due while a debtor has suffered loss of income resulting from involuntary unemployment; nor to municipal corporations, governmental employers or governmental entities; nor to group casualty or liability coverage when the director has determined that an affinity of interest legitimately exists between or among the members of the group.
