Text Search




Enter the text to search for and click Search to get a list of statutes containing the text you entered. Tips:
  • Multiple words will be searched as a phrase. Entering Property Tax will return statutes that contain the complete phrase Property Tax.
  • Logical Operators are allowed. Hunting and Fishing will return statutes that containing both hunting and fishing. Hunting or Fishing will return statutes that contain hunting, fishing, or both.
  • Wild cards(*) are allowed. Entering Approp* will return statutes that contain Appropriation, Appropriate, Appropriated, etc..
  • Punctuation can also be used as operators. + = and, , = or. Searching for phrases that have , and will result in error unless you enclose the entire phrase in quotes.
The Filter option allows you to narrow your search results to a specific Title or Chapter. Here is a tip for using the filter option.
  • Use a dash (-) as the last character of your filter to refine searches. For example the filter "1-1" returns sections in 1-1, 1-10, 1-11, 1-12, etc. The filter "1-1-" returns only sections in Chapter 1-1.

No health insurance policy providing coverage of hospital or medical expense which in addition to covering the insured also provides coverage to the spouse of the insured shall be issued without a provision that provides that upon eligibility for medicare or social security disability benefits by one spouse the other spouse shall be entitled to have issued to him or her, without evidence of insurability, upon application to the company within sixty days following the eligibility, and upon payment of the appropriate premium, an individual policy of accident or health insurance. Such policy shall provide the coverage then being issued by the insurer which is most nearly similar to the existing coverages. This obligation can be met by continuation of coverage for spouse under existing policy at the appropriate premium. Any and all probationary or waiting periods set forth in such policy shall be considered as being met to the extent coverage was in force under the prior policy.
