B. The superintendent shall within thirty (30) days after the filing of any such policies, certificates of insurance, notice of proposed insurance, applications for insurance, endorsements and riders, disapprove any such form if the benefits provided therein are not reasonable in relation to the premium charge, or if it contains provisions which are unjust, unfair, inequitable, misleading, deceptive or encourage misrepresentation of the coverage, or are contrary to any provision of the Insurance Code or of any rule or regulation promulgated thereunder.
C. If the superintendent notifies the insurer that the form is disapproved, it is unlawful thereafter for the insurer to issue or use such form. In such notice the superintendent shall specify the reason for disapproval and state that a hearing will be granted within twenty (20) days after request in writing by the insurer. No such policy, certificate of insurance, notice of proposed insurance, nor any application, endorsement or rider shall be issued or used until the expiration of thirty (30) days after it has been so filed, unless the superintendent gives his prior written approval thereto.

E. The insurer shall not issue such forms or use them after the effective date of such withdrawal.

If a group policy of credit life insurance or credit health insurance has been or is delivered in another state, the insurer shall be required to file only the group certificate and notice of proposed insurance delivered or issued for delivery in this state as specified in Subsections B and D of Section 478 [59A-25-7 NMSA 1978] of this article, and such forms shall be approved by the superintendent if they conform with the requirements specified in such subsections and if the schedules of premium rates applicable to the insurance evidenced by such certificate or notice are not in excess of the insurer's schedules of premium rates filed with the superintendent.
