which requires hospital confinement for medical treatment and:
(a) If the pregnancy is not terminated, is caused by an injury or sickness not directly
related to the pregnancy or by acute nephritis, nephrosis, cardiac decompensation,
missed abortion or similar medically diagnosed conditions; or
(b) If the pregnancy is terminated, results in nonelective cesarean section, ectopic
pregnancy or spontaneous termination.
3. A policy subject to the provisions of this chapter which is delivered or issued

required by this section, and any provision of the policy which is in conflict with
this section is void.
