(a) If any required evidence of insurability is not furnished until more than thirty days after the term would otherwise commence, the term may commence on the date when the insurer determines the evidence to be satisfactory; or
(b) If the creditor provides insurance not previously provided covering debts previously created, the term may commence on the effective date of the policy.
(2) The originally scheduled term of the insurance shall extend at least until the due date of the last scheduled payment of the debt except as follows:

(b) If the consumer is advised in writing that the insurance will be written for a specified shorter time, the term need extend only until the end of the specified time.
