632.74 Reinstatement of individual or franchise disability insurance policies.


(1) Conditions of reinstatement. If an insurer, after termination of an individual or franchise disability insurance policy for nonpayment of premium, within one year after the termination accepts without reservation a premium payment, the policy is reinstated as of the date of the acceptance. There is no acceptance without reservation if the insurer delivers or mails a written statement of reservations within 45 days after receipt of the payment.


(2) Consequences of reinstatement. If a policy is reinstated under sub. (1) or if the insurer within one year after the termination issues to the policyholder a reinstatement policy, any losses resulting from accidents occurring or sickness beginning between the termination and the effective date of the reinstatement or the new policy are not covered, and no premium is payable for that period, except to the extent that the premium is applied to a reserve for future losses. The insurer may also charge a reinstatement fee in accordance with a schedule that has been filed with and expressly approved by the commissioner as not excessive and not unreasonably discriminatory. In all other respects, the reinstated or renewed contract shall be treated as an uninterrupted contract subject to any provisions which are endorsed on or attached to the contract in connection with the reinstatement and which are fully and prominently disclosed to the policyholder.
