CA Ins Code § 10350.2 (2013) What's This?

A disability policy shall contain a provision that shall be in one of the two forms set forth in this section. Policies other than noncancellable policies shall use Form A. Noncancellable policies shall use either Form A or Form B. In Form B, the clause in parentheses in paragraph (a) may be omitted at the insurer s option. Paragraph (a) in Form A shall not be so construed as to affect any legal requirement for avoidance of a policy or denial of a claim during the initial two-year period, nor to limit the application of Sections 10369.2 to 10369.6, inclusive, in the event of misstatement with respect to age or occupation or other insurance.


Form A.

Time Limit on Certain Defenses:(a) After two years from the date of issue of this policy, no misstatements, except fraudulent misstatements, made by the applicant in the application for the policy shall be used to void the policy or to deny a claim for loss incurred or disability (as defined in the policy) commencing after the expiration of the two-year period.

(b) No claim for loss incurred or disability (as defined in the policy) commencing after two years from the date of issue of this policy shall be reduced or denied on the ground that a disease or physical condition not excluded from coverage by name or specific description effective on the date of loss had existed prior to the effective date of coverage of this policy.


Form B.

Incontestable:(a) After this policy has been in force for a period of two years during the lifetime of the insured (excluding any period during which the insured is disabled), it shall become incontestable as to the statements contained in the application.

(b) No claim for loss incurred or disability (as defined in the policy) commencing after two years from the date of issue of this policy shall be reduced or denied on the ground that a disease or physical condition not excluded from coverage by name or specific description effective on the date of loss had existed prior to the effective date of coverage of this policy.
