10. a. No schedule of premiums for coverage for dental services, or amendment thereto, may be used by a dental plan organization until a copy of such schedule, or amendment thereto, has been filed with the commissioner. The commissioner may disapprove the schedule of premiums at any time if he finds that the premiums are excessive, inadequate or unfairly discriminatory. If the commissioner disapproves the schedule of premiums he shall notify the dental plan organization within 5 days of the date of disapproval and specify in the notice, the reason for his disapproval. A hearing shall be granted within 20 days after a request in writing by the filer. It shall be unlawful for any dental plan organization whose schedule of premiums has been disapproved to effect any contract or issue any subscription certificate which uses the disapproved schedule of premiums until a revised schedule of premiums has been filed.
b. Premiums shall be established in accordance with actuarial principles, but premiums applicable to a covered person shall not be individually determined based on the status of his health.
