632.75 Prohibited provisions for disability insurance.


(1) Death presumed from extended absence. Section 813.22 (1) applies to any disability insurance policy providing a death benefit.


(2) Dividends conditioned on continuation of policy or payment of premiums. Except on the first or second anniversary, no dividend payable on a disability insurance policy may be made contingent on the continuation of the policy or on premium payments.


(3) Prohibition of exclusion from coverage of certain dependent children. No disability insurance policy issued or renewed on or after April 30, 1980, may exclude or terminate from coverage any dependent child of an insured person or group member solely because the child does not reside with the insured person or group member. This subsection does not apply to a group policy, as defined in s. 632.897 (1) (c), or an individual policy, as defined in s. 632.897 (1) (cm), that is subject to s. 632.897 (10).


(4) Out-of-state service providers. Except as provided in s. 628.36, no disability insurance policy may exclude or limit coverage of health care services provided outside this state, if the services are provided within 75 miles of the insured's residence in a facility licensed or approved by the state where the facility is located.


(5) Payments for hospital services. No insurer may reimburse a hospital for patient health care costs at a rate exceeding the rate established under ch. 54, 1985 stats., or s. 146.60, 1983 stats., for care provided prior to July 1, 1987.
