(1) All charges to members must be filed with the office and any charge to members greater than $30 per month or $360 per year must be approved by the office before the charges can be used. The discount medical plan organization has the burden of proof that the charges bear a reasonable relation to the benefits received by the member.
(2) There must be a written agreement between the discount medical plan organization and the member specifying the benefits under the discount medical plan and complying with the disclosure requirements of this part.
(3) All forms used, including the written agreement pursuant to subsection (2), must first be filed with and approved by the office. Every form filed shall be identified by a unique form number placed in the lower left corner of each form.
(4) A charge or form is considered approved on the 60th day after its date of filing unless it has been previously disapproved by the office. The office shall disapprove any form that does not meet the requirements of this part or that is unreasonable, discriminatory, misleading, or unfair. If such filings are disapproved, the office shall notify the discount medical plan organization and shall specify in the notice the reasons for disapproval.
