Other Lines of Insurance Nondiscrimination Unfair discrimination between individuals of the same class and equal expectation of life in any contract of life insurance or of life annuity is prohibited. Unfair discrimination between individuals of the same class and of essentially the same hazard for disability insurance is prohibited. An insurer may not refuse to consider an application for life or disability insurance on the basis of a genetic condition. The rejection of an application or the determining of rates, terms, or conditions of a life or disability insurance contract is permissible if the applicant's medical condition and history as well as either claims experience or actuarial projections establish that substantial differences in claims are likely to result from the genetic condition.
