20:06:21:38. Disclosure of riders and endorsements. Except for riders or endorsements by which the insurer effectuates a request made in writing by the insured under an individual long-term care insurance policy, all riders or endorsements added to an individual long-term care insurance policy after the date of issue or at reinstatement or renewal which reduce or eliminate benefits or coverage in the policy must have a signed acceptance by the individual insured. After the date of policy issue, any rider or endorsement which increases benefits or coverage with a concomitant increase in premium during the policy term must be agreed to in writing and signed by the insured unless the increased benefits or coverage are required by law. If a separate additional premium is charged for benefits provided in connection with riders or endorsements, the premium charge must be specified in the policy, rider, or endorsement.
