Notice of coverage under plan

(1) A trust shall provide notice of the following in writing to each individual applying to be covered by a multiple employer welfare arrangement:

(a) The fact that the multiple employer welfare arrangement is subject to less stringent solvency protection and regulation than are insurers holding certificates of authority.

(b) The fact that in the event the trust does not pay medical expenses that are eligible for payment under the multiple employer welfare arrangement, the individuals covered through the multiple employer welfare arrangement may be liable for those expenses.

(2) Each evidence of health benefits provided through a multiple employer welfare arrangement must state that the coverage is obtained through a multiple employer welfare arrangement and that the coverage is not subject to the provisions of ORS 734.750 (Short title) to 734.890 (Association not to be used in sales or solicitation) relating to the Oregon Life and Health Insurance Guaranty Association, and that if the multiple employer welfare arrangement or the trust issuing the coverage becomes insolvent, the Oregon Life and Health Insurance Guaranty Association has no obligation to pay claims under the coverage.

(3) The notice required under subsection (1) of this section and the statement required under subsection (2) of this section are subject to prior review and approval by the Director of the Department of Consumer and Business Services. [1993 c.615 §14]
