§33-24-1. Declaration of policy.
In view of the desirability of making available to the
people of this state increased hospital, medical, dental services
and other health services, the declared policy of the Legislature
in the enactment of this article is to encourage the
organization, promotion and expansion of hospital service
corporations, medical service corporations, dental service
corporations and health service corporations by exempting them
from the payment of all taxes and from the operation of the
general insurance laws of this state, but at the same time
subjecting them to such regulation as may be necessary for the
adequate protection of those members of the public who subscribe
for the services offered by such corporation.
