Any provisions for credits and grouping of data shall be prescribed in the plan of operation.

(2) All profits of the association shall remain as assets of the association.

(3) The plan of operation shall provide financial incentives or financial penalties, or both, to ensure that assessable insurers write essential property insurance in the coast area. The incentives and penalties may include, but are not limited to, a reduction in recovery of regular assessments, a nonrecoverable participation in losses incurred by the association above the amounts covered by the regular assessments, adjustments in the percentage of participation, and other incentives and penalties as provided in the plan of operation. The commissioner shall approve the plan of operation as provided in Section 83-34-13.
