(b) The association may use separate scales of premium rates based on age and geographic location of the insured. The association may use separate scales of premium rates based on other factors, including use or nonuse of tobacco, if approved by the director.

(c) The board shall determine standard risk premium rates by considering the premium rates charged by members of the association offering, to residents of the state, health insurance benefits substantially equivalent to benefits under the state plan.
