California Keeps Electronic Disclosures Alive
September 25, 2019 by Allison Bell
California life and health insurers can continue to communicate with policyholders through e-mail and other electronic transmissions.
California Gov. Gavin Newsom, D, has signed Assembly Bill 1065 — a bill that extends the state’s Uniform Electronic Transactions Act.
The original law was set to sunset Jan. 1, 2021, and some insurers had said they were reluctant to invest in electronic communications systems to fit a law that was on track to expire in the near future.
The law update makes electronic notice transmission authorization permanent.
