17B:27E-10. Prior approval of commissioner required

10. a. Every long-term care insurance policy or contract, including any application, certificate, rider or endorsement to be issued or delivered in this State shall be filed with the commissioner for prior approval as provided in this section.

b. A policy, contract or related form filed with the commissioner for approval pursuant to this section shall be deemed approved upon the expiration of 60 days after the submission of the form unless disapproved in writing by the commissioner within that time. Any such disapproval shall be based only on the specific provisions of applicable statutes or regulations. A disapproved policy, contract or related form may be resubmitted.

c. A long-term care insurance policy, contract or related form submitted for approval pursuant to this section and disapproved by the commissioner before the expiration of 60 days after its submission shall be deemed withdrawn at the expiration of 60 days after the transmittal of the commissioner's specific objections unless the filer submits a complete written response to all of the commissioner's objections regarding the submission within the 60-day period.

d. A long-term care insurance policy, contract or related form resubmitted in response to the commissioner's objections pursuant to subsection b. of this section shall be deemed approved upon the expiration of 30 days after its resubmission unless disapproved in writing by the commissioner within that time. No disapproval by the commissioner of a resubmission shall be based on any objection not specified by the commissioner in his initial disapproval of the filing, except that the commissioner may disapprove that form based on any new provisions introduced in the resubmission or, if in addressing the specific objections cited in the commissioner's disapproval, the insurer changes or modifies any substantive provisions of the form. Any policy, contract or related form resubmitted for approval pursuant to this section and disapproved by the commissioner before the expiration of 30 days after its submission shall be deemed withdrawn at the expiration of 30 days after the transmittal of the commissioner's specific objections, unless the filer submits a complete written response to all of the commissioner's objections regarding the submission within the 30-day period.

e. Any form which is filed with the commissioner and approved or deemed approved 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.) and any rules adopted thereunder, becomes final in accordance therewith.

f. For the purposes of this section, "days" means calendar days, except that when the last day of any specified time period is a Saturday, Sunday, or State holiday, then the time period shall end on the next following business day. With respect to any specified time period pertaining to correspondence between an insurer and the commissioner, the time period shall commence on the date that correspondence is postmarked or submitted to a private delivery service.
