§33-15E-7. Examinations.
The commissioner may examine the business and affairs of any discount medical plan organization to protect the interests of the residents of this state based on the following reasons, including complaint indices, recent complaints or information from other states, or as he or she deems necessary. An examination shall be performed in accordance with the provisions of section nine, article two of this chapter, except that a discount medical plan organization that is the subject of the examination shall pay the expenses incurred in conducting the examination. Failure by the discount medical plan organization to pay the expenses is grounds for the refusal to renew, revoke or suspend a license to operate as a discount medical plan organization.
