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.

58-41-26. Exemption from insurance laws--Exceptions--Taxation.

Any health maintenance organization is exempt from all provisions of the insurance laws of this state other than this chapter. However, the corporation is subject to the provisions of this title on matters and procedures of mergers and licensure of insurance producers. The corporation is also subject to fees and taxation as insurers under § 58-2-29 and chapter 10-44. The corporation is also subject to §§ 58-17-53 and 58-17-54 if entering into a contract after July 1, 1990, with the State of South Dakota, counties, school districts, municipalities, and any other unit of state government using public funds. The state, however, may not collect premium taxes for insurance written on individuals residing outside this state or property located outside this state if no comparable tax is paid by the direct writing health maintenance organization to any appropriate taxing authority. Health maintenance organizations are also subject to the following chapters: 58-1, 58-2, 58-3, 58-4, 58-5, 58-5A, 58-6, 58-7, 58-11, 58-12, 58-14, 58-17, 58-17A, 58-17F, 58-17G, 58-17H, 58-17I, 58-18, 58-18A, 58-18B, 58-18C, 58-26, 58-27, 58-29B on the same basis as insurers, 58-30, 58-33A; and 58-43. Nothing in chapters 58-5 or 58-6 may be construed to prohibit a nonprofit health maintenance organization from transacting business under this title based upon its nonprofit status.

To the extent that a health maintenance organization is compliant with the provisions of chapters 58-17F to 58-17I, inclusive, for purposes of network adequacy, quality assessment and improvements, utilization review and benefit determinations, and grievance procedure, the health maintenance organization is compliant with the provisions of this chapter.
