House Substitute 1 for House Bill 80
149th General Assembly (Present)
AN ACT TO AMEND TITLE 18 OF THE DELAWARE CODE RELATING TO INSURANCE.
This Act replaces existing Chapter 83 of the Delaware Insurance Code and sets forth the permissible uses of credit information in rating personal insurance. This Act also prohibits insurance companies from increasing rates on current customers solely for having reached the age of 75 or above or for having a change in marital status due to the death of a spouse. This Act is substituted for House Bill No. 80 and differs from House Bill No. 80 by removing the required and optional rating-factors lists and the required offering of a good driver discount plan in lieu of provisions which more clearly define how insurance companies may use credit information and insurance scores in calculating their rates.
