AN ACT TO AMEND ACT 127 OF 1989, RELATING TO THE SOUTH CAROLINA HEALTH INSURANCE POOL, SO AS TO DESIGNATE A PORTION OF THAT ACT AS SECTION 38-74-70, CODE OF LAWS OF SOUTH CAROLINA, 1976, AND TO PROVIDE IMMUNITY FROM LIABILITY FOR CERTAIN PERSONS FOR AN ACT OR OMISSION IN THE PERFORMANCE OF THE POWERS AND DUTIES PROVIDED UNDER THE HEALTH INSURANCE POOL AND TO PROVIDE THAT THE POOL IS NOT RELIEVED OF ITS LIABILITY.
Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the State of South Carolina:
Certain immunity from liability; pool remains liable
SECTION 1. Section 7 of Act 127 of 1989 is designated as Section 38-74-70 of the 1976 Code and amended to read:
"Section 38-74-70. (A) Neither the participation in the pool as members, the establishment of rates, forms, or procedures nor any other joint or collective action required by this chapter may be the basis of any legal action, criminal or civil liability, or penalty against the pool or any of its members.
(B) There is no liability on the part of, and no cause of action of any nature may arise against, a member insurer or its agents or employees, the pool's agents, employees, or board of directors, or the commissioner or his representatives, for any act or omission in the performance of their powers and duties under this chapter. This section does not relieve the pool of any of its liability."
SECTION 2. This act takes effect upon approval by the Governor.
Approved the 12th day of June, 1991.
