1. The amount recoverable by the liquidator from reinsurers shall not be reduced as
a result of the delinquency proceedings, regardless of any provision in the reinsurance
contract or other agreement. Payment made directly to an insured or other creditor shall not diminish the reinsurer's
obligation to the insurer's estate except where:
(1) The reinsurance contract specifically provides for payment to the named insured,
assignee or named beneficiary of the policy issued by the ceding insurer in the event
of the ceding insurer's insolvency; or
(2) The assuming insurer, with the consent of the direct insured or insureds, has
directly assumed the ceding insurer's policy obligations to the payees under such
policies in substitution for the ceding insurer's obligations to such payees.
2. Notwithstanding subsection 1 of this section, in the event that a life and health
insurance guaranty association has made the election to succeed to the rights and
obligations of the insolvent insurer under the contract of reinsurance, then the reinsurer's
liability to pay covered reinsured claims shall continue under the contract of reinsurance,
subject to the payment to the reinsurer of the reinsurance premiums for such coverage. Payment for such reinsured claims shall only be made by the reinsurer pursuant to
the direction of the guaranty association or its designated successor. Any payment made at the direction of the guaranty association or its designated
successor by the reinsurer will discharge the reinsurer of all further liability to
any other party for said claim payment.
