Sec. 230.3. Dependent Group Life Insurance. Except for a policy issued under subsection (B) of Section 230.1, a group life insurance policy may be extended to insure the employees or members against loss due to the death of their spouses and dependent children, or any class or classes thereof, subject to the following:
(A) The premium for the insurance shall be paid either from funds contributed by the employer, union, association, or other person to whom the policy has been issued, or from funds contributed by the covered persons, or from both. Except as provided in subsection (B) of this Section, a policy on which no part of the premium for the spouse's and dependent child's coverage is to be derived from funds contributed by the covered persons must insure all eligible employees or members with respect to their spouses and dependent children, or any class or classes thereof.
(B) An insurer may exclude or limit the coverage on any spouse or dependent child as to whom evidence of individual insurability is not satisfactory to the insurer.
(C) The amount of insurance for any covered spouse or dependent child under the policy may not exceed 100% of the amount of insurance for which the employee or member is insured.
