Any trade secrets, proprietary information or the identity and addresses of enrollees contained in the books and records shall be kept confidential, except that the commissioner may use the information in any proceeding instituted against the administrator.
b. The benefits payer shall own the records generated by the administrator pertaining to the benefits payer, except that the administrator shall retain the right to continuing access to books and records to permit the administrator to fulfill all of its contractual obligations to the benefits payer.
