17B:27E-8. Conditions for delivery, issuance of policy

8. a. Except as provided in subsection b. of this section, a long-term care insurance policy shall not be delivered or issued for delivery in this State unless the policyholder or certificate holder has been offered the option of purchasing a policy or certificate including a nonforfeiture benefit. The offer of a nonforfeiture benefit may be in the form of a rider that is attached to the policy. If the policyholder or certificate holder declines the nonforfeiture benefit, the insurer shall provide a contingent benefit upon lapse that shall be available for a specified period of time following a substantial increase in premium rates.

b. When a group long-term care insurance policy is issued, the offer required in subsection a. of this section shall be made to the group policyholder.
