A. An application for the issuance of any life or disability insurance policy or contract is not admissible in evidence in any action relative to such policy or contract, unless a true copy of the application was attached to or otherwise made a part of the policy when issued and delivered. This subsection does not apply to industrial life insurance policies.
B. If any policy of life or disability insurance delivered in this state is reinstated or renewed, and the insured or the beneficiary or assignee of the policy makes written request to the insurer for a copy of the application, if any, for such reinstatement or renewal, the insurer, within thirty days after receipt of the request at its home office or at any of its branch offices, shall deliver or send to the person making the request a copy of the application. If the copy is not delivered or sent after having been requested, the insurer is precluded from introducing the application in evidence in any action or proceeding based on or involving the policy or its reinstatement or renewal.
C. As to kinds of insurance other than life insurance, an application for insurance signed by or on behalf of the insured is not admissible in evidence in any action between the insured and the insurer arising out of the policy so applied for, if the insurer has failed, at the expiration of thirty days after receipt by the insurer of written demand therefor by or on behalf of the insured, to furnish to the insured a copy of the application reproduced by any legible means.
