AS 21.42.140. Standard Provisions.

(a) Insurance contracts must contain the standard or uniform provisions that are required by the applicable provisions of this title pertaining to contracts of particular kinds of insurance. The director may waive the required use of a particular provision in a particular insurance policy form on a determination that

(1) the provision is unnecessary for the protection of the insured and inconsistent with the purposes of the policy; and

(2) the policy is otherwise approved.

(b) A policy may not contain a provision inconsistent with a standard or uniform provision used or required to be used, but the director may approve a substitute provision that the director determines is not less favorable in any particular to the insured or beneficiary than the provisions otherwise required.

(c) In lieu of the provisions required by this title for contracts for particular kinds of insurance, substantially similar provisions required by the law of the domicile of a foreign or alien insurer may be used when approved by the director.

(d) A provision required by this title to be contained in a policy cannot be waived by agreement between the insurer and another person.
