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.

     58-33-13.1.   Sex or marital status discrimination prohibited--Exceptions. An insurance contract may not be denied to an insured or prospective insured on the basis of his or her sex or marital status. The amount of benefits payable, or any term, conditions, or type of coverage shall not be restricted, modified, excluded, or reduced on the basis of the sex or marital status of the insured or prospective insured except to the extent the amount of benefits, term, conditions, or type of coverage vary as a result of the application of rate differentials permitted under this title. However, an insurer may take marital status into account for the purpose of defining persons eligible for dependents benefits. This section shall not affect the right of fraternal benefit societies to determine eligibility requirements for membership. This section shall apply to all contracts delivered or issued for delivery in this state by an insurer on or after July 1, 1980 and to all existing group contracts which are amended on or after July 1, 1980.
