(3) Upon expiration of the suspension period, if within such period the certificate of authority has not terminated, the insurer’s certificate of authority shall automatically reinstate unless the director finds that the causes of the suspension have not terminated, or that the insurer is otherwise not in compliance with the requirements of this code, and of which the director shall give the insurer notice not less than thirty (30) days in advance of the expiration of the suspension period after which time the director may issue a new order of suspension.
