47. No insurer or administrator of an employee benefit plan may cancel a contract or the prescription drug insurance component of a plan, with regard to the basic plan coverage, unless the policy-holder or the member fails to pay the premium or assessment. In such a case, the cancellation may not take effect until 30 days have elapsed since the date on which the insurer or administrator sent a notice of intent to the last known address of the policy-holder or member. A copy of the notice must be sent to the Board.
