Section 27-19-3

Mandatory policy provisions - Generally.

(a) Except as provided in subsection (b) of this section, each such policy delivered, or issued for delivery, to any person in this state shall contain the provisions specified in Sections 27-19-4 through 27-19-15, in the words in which the same appear; except, that the insurer may, at its option, substitute for one or more of such provisions corresponding provisions of different wording approved by the commissioner which are in each instance not less favorable in any respect to the insured or the beneficiary. Each such provision shall be preceded individually by the applicable caption shown or, at the option of the insurer, by such appropriate individual or group captions or subcaptions as the commissioner may approve.

(b) If any such provision is, in whole or in part, inapplicable to, or inconsistent with, the coverage provided by a particular form of policy, the insurer, with the approval of the commissioner, shall omit from such policy any inapplicable provision, or part of a provision, and shall modify any inconsistent provision, or part of a provision, in such manner as to make the provision as contained in the policy consistent with the coverage provided by the policy.
