17:29C-1.2 Senior citizen insured to designate third party to receive copies of certain notices.
2.Every insurer shall permit its senior citizen insureds to designate a third party to whom the insurer shall transmit a copy of notices of cancellation, nonrenewal and conditional renewal. The senior citizen insured shall notify the insurer that a third party has been so designated. Such notification shall be delivered to the insurer by certified mail, return receipt requested, and shall be effective not later than ten business days from the date of receipt by the insurer. The notification shall contain, in writing, an acceptance by the third party designee to receive copies of notices of cancellation, nonrenewal and conditional renewal from the insurer. Should the third party designee desire to terminate the status as a third party designee, the designee shall provide written notice to both the insurer and the senior citizen insured. Should the senior citizen insured desire to terminate the third party designation, the insured shall provide written notice to the insurer. The transmission to the third party designee of a copy of any notice of cancellation, nonrenewal or conditional renewal shall be in addition to the original document transmitted to the senior citizen insured and when a third party is so designated all such notices and copies shall be mailed in an envelope clearly marked on its face with the following: "IMPORTANT INSURANCE POLICY INFORMATION: OPEN IMMEDIATELY." The copy of the notice of cancellation, nonrenewal or conditional renewal transmitted to the third party shall be governed by the same law and policy provisions which govern the notice being transmitted to the senior citizen insured. Designation as a third party shall not constitute acceptance of any liability on the part of the third party for services provided to the senior citizen insured, nor on the part of the insurer. The insurer shall notify its senior citizen insureds annually in writing, except in cases in which the age of the senior citizen insured is unknown to the insurer, of the availability of the third party designee notice procedures and provide information on how the insured can commence this procedure, except that notice need not be provided once a senior citizen insured has made a designation. An insurer may provide this required annual notice to its senior citizen insureds in any manner that it determines.
