SECTION 27-60.1-6


§ 27-60.1-6 Justification of adverse insurance decisions.

An insurer or insurance professional that takes an action not prohibited by § 27-60.1-5 that adversely affects an applicant or insured on the basis of claim or other underwriting information that the insurer or insurance professional knows or has reason to know is abuse-related shall explain the reason for its action to the applicant or insured in writing and shall be able to demonstrate that its action, and any applicable policy provision:

(1) Does not have the purpose of treating abuse status as an underwriting criterion; and

(2) Is otherwise permissible by law and applies in the same manner and to the same extent to all applicants and insureds with a similar claim or claims history without regard to whether the claims are abuse-related.
