Current through Bulletin No. 2021-18, September 15, 2021

A. The format and content of an insurance advertisement shall be sufficiently complete and clear to avoid deceiving or misleading the reader, viewer, or listener. Whether an advertisement is misleading or deceiving shall be determined from the overall impression that the advertisement may reasonably be expected to create upon a person of average education or intelligence within the segment of the public to which it is directed.
B. Advertisements shall be truthful and not misleading in fact or in implication. Words or phrases, the meaning of which is clear only by implication or by familiarity with insurance terminology, may not be used without a clear explanation of such words or phrases.
C. An insurer must clearly identify its insurance policy as an insurance policy. A policy trade name must be followed by the words "Insurance Policy" or similar words clearly identifying the fact that an insurance policy or, in the case of health maintenance organizations, prepaid health plans and other direct service organizations, a health benefits product is being offered.
D. No insurer, producer, solicitor or other person may solicit residents of this state for the purchase of insurance through the use of a name that is deceptive or misleading with regard to the status, character, or proprietary or representative capacity of such person, or the true purpose of the advertisement.
