In the case of a group defined in section 62S.01, subdivision 15, clause (1), any requirement that a signature of an insured be obtained by an agent or insurer is satisfied if:
(1) the consent is obtained by telephonic or electronic enrollment by the group policyholder or insurer. A verification of enrollment information must be provided to the enrollee;
(2) the telephonic or electronic enrollment provides necessary and reasonable safeguards to ensure the accuracy, retention, and prompt retrieval of records; and
(3) the telephonic or electronic enrollment provides necessary and reasonable safeguards to ensure that the confidentiality of individually identifiable information and "privileged information" as defined by section 72A.491, subdivision 19, is maintained.
The insurer shall make available, upon request of the commissioner, records that will demonstrate the insurer's ability to confirm enrollment and coverage amounts.
