1. The Third-Party Notice Request Form may be included as part of each initial or renewal application, or it may be a supplemental form.
2. If separate from an application, the Third-Party Notice Request Form shall be furnished to the policyholder before or at the time of delivery of the policy to the covered person, and it shall indicate that it is part of the policy.
3. Within 10 days after a request by a policyholder, a Third-Party Notice Request Form shall be provided by First Class U.S. mail or delivered in-hand by a duly-authorized representative of the insurer.
4. If the policyholder does not return the Third-Party Notice Request Form within 30 days, the insurer may assume that the policyholder elects not to designate a third party. However, by written request, the policyholder may designate a third party at any subsequent time.
