(1) If an insurer issues one or more of the following or takes any other action based wholly or partially on medical underwriting considerations which is likely to render any person eligible under s. 149.12 for coverage under ch. 149, the insurer shall notify all persons affected of the existence of the mandatory health insurance risk-sharing plan under ch. 149, as well as the eligibility requirements and method of applying for coverage under the plan:


(a) A notice of rejection or cancellation of coverage.
