17:35-26. Policy or certificate forms, classification of risks and premiums or rates of contribution; filing with Commissioner; disapproval of forms, review
No policy or certificate or endorsement thereto granting benefits in the event of death, sickness, or bodily injury or death of the insured by accident shall be issued or delivered in this State by any assessment insurance company or association until a copy of the form thereof, the classification of risks and the premiums or rates of contribution thereon and the form of application therefor have been filed with the Commissioner of Banking and Insurance. If the commissioner shall at any time notify any company or association of his disapproval of any such policy or certificate form, application or endorsement because such policy, application or endorsement contains provisions which are unjust, unfair, inequitable, misleading, contrary to law or to the public policy of this State or because the policy or certificate is sold in such manner as to mislead the insured or because insurance under such policy or certificate is being solicited by any means of advertising, communication or dissemination of information which involves misleading or inadequate description of the provisions of the policy or certificate, specifying particulars, it shall be unlawful for such company or association thereafter to issue any policy or certificate or endorsement thereto or use any application in the form so disapproved. Such disapproval of the commissioner shall be subject to review by the Superior Court in a proceeding in lieu of prerogative writ.
