An insurer, insurance agent, or insurance-support organization must not prepare or request an investigative consumer report about an individual in connection with an insurance transaction involving an application for insurance, a policy renewal, a policy reinstatement, or a change in insurance benefits, unless the insurer or insurance agent informs the person:
(1) that the individual may request to be interviewed in connection with the preparation of the investigative consumer report; and
(2) that, upon a request pursuant to section 72A.497, the individual is entitled to receive a copy of the investigative consumer report.
If an investigative consumer report is to be prepared by an insurer or insurance agent, the insurer or insurance agent shall institute reasonable procedures to conduct a personal interview requested by an individual.
If an investigative consumer report is to be prepared by an insurance-support organization, the insurer or insurance agent desiring the report shall inform the insurance-support organization whether a personal interview has been requested by the individual. The insurance-support organization shall institute reasonable procedures for conducting an interview, if requested.
