§ 2003. Waiting period for filings. (a) General rule.--Notwithstanding any other provision of law to the contrary and except as otherwise provided in subsection (b), no rate filing to which this chapter applies may become effective prior to the expiration of a waiting period of 60 days from the date the filing is received by the commissioner. This 60-day period may be extended an additional 30 days by the commissioner upon written notice to the insurer or rating organization making the filing. (b) Exceptions.--The waiting period and extensions thereof required by subsection (a) shall not apply in the following circumstances: (1) When an insurer or rating organization makes written application, the commissioner may authorize a filing or part thereof which has been reviewed to become effective prior to the expiration of the waiting period or any extension thereof as provided in subsection (a). (2) Upon the written consent of the insured stating his reasons therefor, filed and approved by the department, a rate in excess of that provided by a filing otherwise applicable may be used on any specific risk. The rate shall become effective when such consent is filed and shall be deemed to meet the requirements of this chapter and other applicable statutes governing the establishment of rates until such time as the commissioner reviews the filing and so long thereafter as the filing remains in effect. Cross References. Section 2003 is referred to in sections 2004, 2006, 2007 of this title.
