Electronic transactions: insurance.

Abstract

Existing law, the Uniform Electronic Transactions Act, applies to electronic records and electronic signatures of a transaction, and generally prohibits a record or signature from being denied legal effect or enforceability solely because it is in electronic form or a contract being denied legal effect or enforceability solely because an electronic record was used in its formation. Existing law exempts certain transactions from that act, including insurance application forms. This bill would delete the Medicare supplement policy application forms exception, and would thereby apply the provisions of the act to these application forms. The bill would also make nonsubstantive changes to those provisions.
