F.S. 626.8373
626.8373 Overinsurance of health insurance coverage.
(1) With respect to the solicitation and sale of health insurance, continuing care contracts pursuant to chapter 651, health maintenance contracts pursuant to part II of chapter 641, or Medicare supplement insurance, an agent shall ask each person solicited whether he or she is currently covered under a health insurance policy, continuing care contract, health maintenance, or Medicare supplement insurance policy. The agent shall explain to each person the extent to which the proposed coverage will overlap or duplicate the existing coverage after considering any applicable coordination of benefits provisions under the existing or proposed health coverage if the person solicited has a copy of his or her current policy for the agent to review or if the person’s current policy is with the same insurer as the proposed replacement policy.
(2) The department may by rule prescribe such acknowledgment and information forms as it deems necessary or advisable to protect consumers from uninformed buying of overlapping, duplicative, or significantly different coverages. The department may require agents or insurers to have such forms signed by applicants when an application is taken or before an application is processed, and to retain such forms thereafter in the agent’s and insurer’s files.
