17B:27-74 Filing of form required for delivery, issuance of group life insurance.
7. a. No group life insurance policy, or application, if a written application is required and is to be made a part of the policy, certificate, printed rider or endorsement for use with the policy, shall be delivered or issued for delivery in this State unless the form has been filed with the Commissioner of Banking and Insurance for approval in accordance with the provisions of section 16 of P.L.1995, c.73 (C.17B:25-18.2).
b. If a form is disapproved for filing by the commissioner during the 60-day period provided in section 16 of P.L.1995, c.73 (C.17B:25-18.2), it may not be delivered or issued for delivery unless it is resubmitted and approved in accordance with the provisions of subsections b., c., and d., of section 16 of P.L.1995, c.73 (C.17B:25-18.2). Such disapproval shall be subject to review in accordance with the "Administrative Procedure Act," P.L.1968, c.410 (C.52:14B-1 et seq.).
c. Any form which is filed by the commissioner or deemed filed may be so delivered or issued for delivery until such time as any subsequent withdrawal of the filing by the commissioner, following an opportunity for a hearing held in accordance with the "Administrative Procedure Act," P.L.1968, c.410 (C.52:14B-1 et seq.), becomes final in accordance therewith.
d. This section shall not apply to documents which relate only to the manner of distribution of benefits or to the reservation of rights and benefits under group life insurance policies and which are used at the request of the individual insured or policyholder.
e. The disapproval by the commissioner of any form may be on the grounds that the form contains provisions which are unjust, unfair, inequitable, misleading, or contrary to law or to the public policy of this State.
