AS 21.57.070. Requirements For Evidence of Insurance.
- (a) Unless the individual policy or group certificate of insurance is delivered to the debtor at the time the debt is
incurred or when the debtor elects to purchase coverage, a copy of the application for the policy or a notice of
proposed insurance, signed by the debtor and setting out (1) the name and home office address of the insurer, (2) the
name of the debtor, (3) the premium rate to be paid by the debtor for the insurance, and (4) the amount, term, and a
brief description of the coverage provided, shall be delivered to the debtor at the time the debt is incurred or the
election to purchase coverage is made, or, within 10 days from the date of the election to purchase coverage, if the
election to purchase coverage is made by telephone. The copy of the application for or notice of proposed insurance
must refer exclusively to insurance coverage and must be separate and apart from the loan, sale, other credit statement
of account, instrument, or agreement, unless the information required by this subsection is prominently set out in it.
Upon acceptance of the insurance by the insurer and within 30 days of the date upon which the debt is incurred or the
election to purchase coverage is made, the insurer shall deliver the individual policy or group certificate of
insurance to the debtor. The application or notice of proposed insurance must state that upon acceptance by the
insurer, the insurance shall become effective as provided in AS 21.57.050(a).
- (b) The application or notice of proposed insurance may be used to fulfill all of the requirements of AS 21.57.055
(a) and 21.57.060(b) if it contains all of the
information required by those subsections.
- (c) A debtor has 30 days from the date the debtor receives the individual policy or the group certificate to review the
coverage purchased. At any time within the 30-day period, the debtor may contact the creditor or insurer issuing the
policy or certificate and request that the coverage be cancelled. An individual policy or group certificate may require
the request be in writing, that the policy or certificate be returned to the insurer, or both. If a policy is
cancelled, the insurer shall return a full refund or credit of all premiums or insurance charges to the debtor within
- (d) If the named insurer does not accept the risk, the debtor shall receive a policy or certificate of insurance listing
the name and home office address of the substituted insurer and the amount of the premium to be charged. If the amount
of premium is less than the amount in the notice of proposed insurance, the insurer shall issue an appropriate refund
within 30 days. If the risk is not accepted by an insurer, a premium paid by the debtor shall be refunded or credited
to the debtor within 30 days of the date of application.
- (e) For the purposes of (a) of this section, an individual policy or group certificate delivered in conjunction with an
open-end consumer credit agreement or consumer credit insurance requested by the debtor after the date of the debt is
considered to be delivered at the time the debt is incurred or election to purchase coverage is made if the delivery
occurs within 30 days of the date the insurance is effective.
- (f) An individual policy or group certificate delivered in conjunction with an open-end consumer credit agreement shall
continue from its effective date through the term of the agreement unless the individual policy or group certificate is
terminated under its terms at an earlier date.
