Permissible classes of insurance in one policy
(1) Except as provided in this section, when more than one class of insurance as defined in ORS 731.150 (Definitions of classes of insurance not mutually exclusive) to 731.194 ("Wet marine and transportation insurance") is effected by an insurer each class shall be written in a separate and distinct policy. Any such policy may be canceled, surrendered or otherwise terminated without affecting other premiums paid or policies held by the same insured.
(2) Except as provided in this section, the same policy shall not include insurance coverages as to which the liability of the insurer for unearned premiums or the reserve for unpaid, deferred or undetermined loss claims is estimated in a different manner.
(3) Insurance in one policy may be effected upon automobiles and vehicles, and the accessories and other property transported upon and used in connection therewith, against loss or damage by fire, collision and explosion, and against loss by legal liability for damage to persons or property, or both, resulting from the maintenance, use or operation of such automobiles or vehicles, and against loss by burglary, embezzlement or theft, or any one or more of them. Premiums and losses for such insurance are to be reported to the Director of the Department of Consumer and Business Services under the title "automobile insurance." For this purpose an insurer need not use the standard fire insurance policy required by ORS 742.202 (Standard fire insurance policy).
(4) Insurance in one policy may be effected against loss or damage of property and against personal injury and death, and liability therefor, from explosion of steam boilers, tanks and engines, pipes and machinery connected therewith, and breakage of flywheels and machinery. Premiums and losses for such insurance are to be reported to the director under the title "steam boiler insurance."
(5) Insurance under the classes of life and health insurance may be effected in one policy.
(6) Insurance in one policy effected against any physical loss or damage occurring to properties may include coverage as to other perils, either on an unspecified basis as to coverage or for a single premium.
(7) Insurance in one policy effected against loss or destruction of baggage while traveling which is written on a single premium nonrenewable basis may include travel ticket health insurance benefits.
(8) Insurance under more than one class of insurance may be effected in one policy if the director finds that the issuance of the policy is in the best interest of the public. [Formerly 736.310 and then 743.072; 2005 c.185 §2]
