When director may authorize lower standards

The Director of the Department of Consumer and Business Services may authorize a lower score than the Flesch reading ease test score required by ORS 743.106 (Reading ease standards for life and health insurance policies) when, in the director’s sole discretion, the director finds that a lower required score:

(1) Will provide a more accurate reflection of the readability of a policy form;

(2) Is warranted by the nature of a particular policy form or type or class of policy forms; or

(3) Is caused by certain policy language drafted to conform to the requirements of any state law, regulation or agency interpretation. [Formerly 743.368]
