17B:27-38. Certificate

There shall be a provision that the insurer shall issue to the employer, the policyholder, or other person or association in whose name such policy is issued, for delivery to each employee or member, a certificate setting forth in summary form a statement of the essential features of the insurance coverage, to whom the benefits thereunder are payable, and in substance the provisions of sections 17B:27-39 to 17B:27-46, inclusive of this chapter. This section shall not apply to blanket policies issued pursuant to section 17B:27-32a(1) and 17B:27-32a(3) of this act, nor to group health policies insuring a private plan under the Temporary Disability Benefits Law, if reasonable notice of the benefits provided thereby is furnished to the covered employees by direct notification or by conspicuous posting at the place of employment. If family members or dependents are included in the coverage, only one certificate need be issued for each family unit.
