31 Pa. Code § 73.128. Terminations.

§ 73.128. Terminations.

 (a)  Individual policy termination. An individual policy of credit insurance may not be terminated by an insurer, except for nonpayment of premium, prior to the scheduled expiration date of the policy, unless the indebtedness is sooner discharged due to renewal, refinancing or prepayment.

 (b)  Continuation of coverage. If a debtor is insured under a single premium group credit insurance policy, the insurer shall provide that in the event of termination of the policy, insurance coverage with respect to the debtor shall continue with either the original insurer or a new insurer for the entire period for which the single premium has been paid.

 (c)  Notice of termination. If a debtor is insured under a group credit insurance policy providing for the payment of premiums to the insurer on a monthly premium basis, the insurer shall, in the event of termination of the policy, cause a notice of termination to be provided to the insured debtor at least 30 days prior to the effective date of termination. A termination notice is not required if replacement coverage, of at least equal value, takes effect on the effective date of termination. The terminating insurer shall be responsible for assuring that any required termination notice is provided.

 (d)  Assumption of coverage. If an existing group policy is assumed by another insurer, the assuming insurer shall issue to the group policyholder a certificate of assumption for attachment to the group policy. If the entity to which the insured debtor is indebted is other than the group policyholder, the assuming insurer shall make reasonable efforts to notify the entity of the assumption.
