(2) Whenever the Director of Insurance believes that any insurer is violating or about to violate section 44-2002, the director may, without notice, and before a hearing, issue a summary cease and desist order. At the same time the order is issued, the director shall serve notice to the insurer of the reasons for such order and that the insurer may request a hearing in writing within ten business days after receipt of the order. If a hearing is requested, the director shall schedule a hearing within ten business days after receipt of the request. The hearing shall be conducted in accordance with the Administrative Procedure Act.
