Oregon Statutes - Chapter 743 - Health and Life Insurance - Section 743.376 - Duration of credit life and credit health insurance.

(1) The term of any credit life or credit health insurance shall, subject to acceptance by the insurer, commence on the date when the debtor becomes obligated to the creditor, except that, where a group policy provides coverage with respect to existing obligations, the insurance on a debtor with respect to such indebtedness shall commence on the effective date of the policy. Where evidence of insurability is required and such evidence is furnished more than 30 days after the date when the debtor becomes obligated to the creditor, the term of the insurance may commence on the date on which the insurer determines the evidence to be satisfactory, and in such event there shall be an appropriate refund or adjustment of any charge to the debtor for insurance.

(2) The term of the insurance shall not extend more than 15 days beyond the scheduled maturity date of the indebtedness except when extended without additional cost to the debtor.

(3) If the indebtedness is discharged because of renewal or refinancing prior to the scheduled maturity date, the insurance in force shall be terminated before any new insurance may be issued in connection with the renewed or refinanced indebtedness.

(4) In all cases of termination of the insurance prior to the scheduled maturity date of the indebtedness, a refund shall be paid or credited as provided in ORS 743.378. [Formerly 739.585 and then 743.576]
