New York State Insurance Law § 2612 and related regulations establish provisions for persons insured by an individual insurance policy issued to another person (the "policyholder") or a group insurance policy. This law and the related regulations place requirements on insurance companies, such as State Farm, when the insurance companies are provided with a valid Order of Protection against the policyholder or another person covered under a group insurance policy. For the duration of the Order of Protection, the insurance company is prohibited from disclosing the address and telephone number of the insured or of any person or entity providing services to the insured, to the policyholder or another person covered by a group insurance policy. If a child is the insured, this right may be asserted by the child's parent or legal guardian.
In addition, an insurer may not discriminate against a person solely because he or she has been a victim of domestic violence.
