GROUP AND BLANKET DISABILITY INSURANCE
41-2203. Required provisions in group policies. Each such group disability insurance policy shall contain in substance the following provisions:
(1) A provision that, in the absence of fraud, all statements made by applicants or the policyholders or by an insured person shall be deemed representations and not warranties, and that no statement made for the purpose of effecting insurance shall void such insurance or reduce benefits unless contained in a written instrument signed by the policyholder or the insured person, a copy of which has been furnished to such policyholder or to such person or his beneficiary.
(2) A provision that the insurer will furnish to the policyholder for delivery to each employee or member of the insured group, a statement in summary form of the essential features of the insurance coverage of such employee or member and to whom benefits thereunder are payable. If dependents are included in the coverage, only one (1) certificate need be issued for each family unit.
(3) A provision that to the group originally insured may be added from time to time eligible new employees or members or dependents, as the case may be, in accordance with the terms of the policy.
(4) A provision that, a policy delivered or issued for delivery in this state more than one hundred twenty (120) days after the effective date of this act under which coverage of a dependent of a member of an insured group terminates at a specified age shall, with respect to an unmarried child who is incapable of self-sustaining employment by reason of intellectual disability or physical disability and who became so incapable prior to attainment of the limiting age and who is chiefly dependent upon such member for support and maintenance, not so terminate while the policy remains in force and the dependent remains in such condition, if the member has within thirty-one (31) days of such dependent’s attainment of the limiting age submitted proof of such dependent’s incapacity as described herein. The insurer may require at reasonable intervals during the two (2) years following the child’s attainment of the limiting age subsequent proof of the child’s disability and dependency. After the two (2) year period, such subsequent proof may not be required more than once each year.
