    5         (d) A health insurer, life insurer, or long-term care
    6  insurer may not obtain, directly or indirectly, personally
    7  identifiable health information that is in, or the result of,
    8  any direct-to-consumer genetic test.
    9         (e) This section may not be construed as prohibiting a life
   10  insurer from accessing an individual’s medical record as part of
   11  an application examination. This section does not prohibit a
   12  life insurer from considering and using an individual’s medical
   13  record, even if the medical record contains the results of a
   14  genetic test. However, a life insurer may only consider and use
   15  genetic information contained in an individual’s medical record
   16  in accordance with paragraph (a).
   17         Section 2. Unless reviewed and saved from repeal through
   18  reenactment by the Legislature, the amendment made by this act
   19  to s. 627.4301, Florida Statutes, expires July 1, 2021, and the
   20  text of that section shall revert to that in existence on June
   21  30, 2019, except that any amendments to such text enacted other
   22  than by this act shall be preserved and continue to operate to
   23  the extent that such amendments are not dependent upon the
   24  portions of text which expire pursuant to this section.
