Subdivision 1.Scope.

No individual policy of accident and sickness regulated under this chapter or subscriber contract regulated under chapter 62C shall be issued, renewed, or continued to provide coverage to a Minnesota resident unless it satisfies the requirements of subdivision 2.

Subd. 2.Requirement.

If an issuer of policies or plans referred to in subdivision 1 ceases to offer a particular policy or subscriber contract to the general public or otherwise stops adding new insureds to the group of covered persons, the issuer shall allow any covered person to transfer to another substantially similar policy or contract currently being sold by the issuer. The issuer shall permit the transfer without any preexisting condition limitation, waiting period, or other restriction of any type other than those which applied to the insured under the prior policy or contract. This section does not apply to persons who were covered under an individual policy or contract prior to July 1, 1994.
