SECTION 424
Validity of noncomplying contracts.
F.S. 641.424
641.424 Validity of noncomplying contracts.
(1) Any prepaid health clinic contract, or contract rider, endorsement, attachment, or addendum, that contains any condition or provision not in compliance with the requirements of this part but is otherwise valid shall not be rendered invalid by such condition or provision, except as provided in s. 641.421, but shall be construed and applied in accordance with such conditions and provisions as would have applied had such contract, rider, endorsement, attachment, or addendum been in full compliance with this contract. In the event a clinic issues or delivers any contract for an amount which exceeds any limitation otherwise provided for in this part, such clinic is liable to the subscriber or his or her beneficiary for the full amount stated in the contract in addition to any other penalties that may be imposed under this part.
(2) Any contract delivered or issued for delivery in this state covering a subscriber resident, located, or to be performed in this state, which subscriber, pursuant to the provisions of this part, the clinic may not lawfully provide under such a contract, is cancelable at any time by the clinic, any provision of the contract to the contrary notwithstanding; and the clinic shall promptly cancel the contract in accordance with the request of the office for such cancellation. No such illegality or cancellation shall be deemed to relieve the clinic of any liability incurred by the clinic under the contract while the contract was in force or to prohibit the clinic from retaining the pro rata earned premium on the contract. This provision does not relieve the clinic from any penalty otherwise incurred by the clinic under this part on account of any such violation.
