(a) No insurance company shall charge unfair discriminatory premiums, policy fees or rates for, or refuse to provide, any policy or contract of life insurance, life annuity or policy containing disability coverage for a person solely because the applicant therefor has a mental or physical handicap unless the rate differential, or refusal to provide, is based on sound actuarial principles or is related to actual or reasonably anticipated experience. No insurance company shall unfairly discriminate in the payments of dividends, other benefits payable under a policy, or in any of the terms and conditions of such policy or contract solely because the owner of the policy or contract has a mental or physical handicap unless the difference is based on sound actuarial principles or is related to actual or reasonably anticipated experience.

(b) Nothing in this section shall be construed as requiring an insurance company to provide insurance coverage against a mental or physical handicap which the applicant or policyholder has already sustained.

(c) Enforcement of the provisions of this section shall be in accordance with article 24 of chapter 40 of the Kansas Statutes Annotated, and acts amendatory thereof and supplemental thereto.
