[§431:10H-206]  Discontinuance and replacement.  If a group long-term care insurance policy is replaced by another group long-term care insurance policy issued to the same policyholder, the succeeding insurer shall offer coverage to all persons covered under the previous group policy on its date of termination.  Coverage provided or offered to individuals by the insurer and premiums charged to person under the new group policy shall not:

     (1)  Result in an exclusion for preexisting conditions that would have been covered under the group policy being replaced; and

     (2)  Vary or otherwise depend on the individual's health or disability status, claim experience, or use of long-term care services. [L 1999, c 93, pt of §2]
