An Act To Amend Title 18 Of The Delaware Code Relating To Automobile Insurance Policies.

Abstract

Section 1 of this Act clarifies that the reinstatement obligations of insurers under Section 3903(d) apply in instances of both nonrenewals and cancellations of policies due to nonpayment of premiums. Sections 2 through 4 of this Act revise the method by which an insured may contest or appeal a nonrenewal or cancellation of an automobile policy from a hearing process to a review by the Commissioner on the papers, which reflects the Department’s prior practices in handling these appeals and provides a more streamlined and efficient process for timely reviewing a consumer’s appeal. Section 5 of this Act extends the protections against unfair automobile insurance rating practices related to a service member’s deployment to deployments both within and outside of the U.S. and its waters.
