Accident or health and total or permanent disability insurance contracts.

(a) No domestic, foreign, or alien society authorized to do business in this state shall issue or deliver in this state any certificate or other evidence of any contract of accident insurance or health insurance or of any total and permanent disability insurance contract unless and until the form thereof, together with the form of application and all riders or endorsements for use in connection therewith, shall have been filed with the commissioner.

Where the commissioner deems inapplicable, either in part or in their entirety, the provisions of Chapter 19 of this title, he may prescribe the portions, or summary thereof, of the contract to be printed on the certificate issued to the member.

(c) Any filing made under this section shall be deemed approved unless disapproved within 60 days from the date of such filing.
