Chapter 354

354.152. Premiums, dues or fees subject to restrictions — violation, hearing — order prohibiting. — Premiums, dues or fees made by each corporation shall be subject to the following provisions:

(1) Premiums, dues or fees shall not be excessive or inadequate, as herein defined, nor shall they be unfairly discriminatory;

(2) No premiums, dues or fees shall be held to be excessive unless such premiums, dues or fees are unreasonably high relative to the corporation's loss experience under policies, plans or contracts with respect to the territory or classification to which such premiums, dues or fees are applicable;

(3) No premiums, dues or fees shall be held to be inadequate unless such premiums, dues or fees are unreasonably low for the coverage provided and the continued use of such premiums, dues or fees endangers the solvency of the corporation using the same;

(4) If the director of the department of insurance, financial institutions and professional registration has reason to believe that any premiums, dues or fees do not meet the standards of this section, he shall hold a public hearing in connection therewith, provided* that within a reasonable period of time, which shall be not less than ten days before the date of such hearing, he shall mail written notice specifying the matters to be considered at such hearing to any corporation believed by him not to be in compliance with the provisions of this section;

(5) If the director, after such hearings, for good cause finds that such premiums, dues or fees do not meet the provisions of this section, he shall issue an order specifying in what respects any such premiums, dues or fees fails to meet the provisions of this section and stating when, within a reasonable period of time thereafter, the further use of such premiums, dues or fees by the corporation which is the subject of the examination shall be prohibited and a copy of such order shall be sent to such corporation.
