(c) Each health maintenance organization and provider shall submit its relevant books and records for the examinations specified in this section and in every way facilitate those examinations. For the purpose of examinations, the commissioner and the administrator may administer oaths to and examine the officers and agents of the health maintenance organization and the principals of any providers concerning their business.

(ii) The examination is performed under the supervision of an accredited insurance department or with the participation of one (1) or more examiners who are employed by an accredited insurance department and who, after the review of the examination work papers and report, state under oath that the examination was performed in a manner consistent with the standards and procedures required by their insurance department.
