Section 27-14-10

Standard or uniform provisions; waiver or substitution thereof.

(a) Insurance contracts shall contain such standard or uniform provisions as are required by the applicable provisions of this title pertaining to contracts of particular kinds of insurance; however, the commissioner may waive the required use of a particular provision in a particular insurance policy form if:

(1) He finds such provision unnecessary for the protection of the insured or inconsistent with the purposes of the policy; and

(2) The policy is otherwise approved by him.

(b) No policy shall contain any provision inconsistent with, or contradictory to, any standard or uniform provision used or required to be used, but the commissioner may approve any substitute provision which is, in his opinion, not less favorable in any particular to the insured or beneficiary than the provisions otherwise required.

(c) In lieu of the provisions required by this title for contracts for particular kinds of insurance, substantially similar provisions required by the law of the domicile of a foreign or alien insurer may be used when approved by the commissioner.
