SECTION 7. INFORMATION FOR NEW YORK VICTIMS OF DOMESTIC VIOLENCE
The provisions in New York Insurance Law, section 2612, relate to persons insured by an individual insurance policy issued to policyholders or a group insurance policy. According to this law, insurers who receive a valid order of protection against a policyholder are prohibited for the duration of the order from disclosing to the policyholder the address, telephone number of the insured, or of any person or entity providing covered services to the insured, to the policyholder or another person covered by a group insurance policy. If the insured is a child, this right may be asserted by the child’s parent or legal guardian. Furthermore, the insurer may not refuse to issue or renew, deny or cancel any insurance policy, demand or require a greater premium or payment from any person or designate domestic violence as a prior condition, for which coverage will be denied/reduced solely because a person is or has been a victim of domestic violence. The insurer will accommodate reasonable requests by a person covered by an insurance policy to receive communications of claim related information by alternative means or at alternative locations if the person clearly states that disclosure of the information could endanger him or her. If the covered person is a child, then the child’s parent or legal guardian may make the request. The insurer, without the consent of the person making the request, will be prohibited from disclosing to the policyholder or other person the address, telephone number, any other personally identifying information, information regarding a child residing with the covered person, the nature of the health care services provided, the name or address of the provider of the covered services to the covered person. The request must include an alternative address, telephone number and/or other reasonable methods of contact. The request should be made by emailing a copy of the order of protection to the insurer at email@example.com. In order to revoke a request that has been received and implemented, the requesting person must submit to the insurer a written sworn statement revoking the prior request. For additional assistance, please contact the New York State Domestic and Sexual Violence Hotline. NYS Domestic and Sexual Violence Hotline: (800) 942-6906; Spanish language: (800) 942-6908; In NYC: (800) 621-HOPE (4673) or dial 311; TTY: (866) 604-5350.
