  (2)  Impose no requirements affecting the terms or benefits of qualified long-term care partnership policies unless the director imposes such a requirement on all long-term care policies sold in this state, without regard to whether the policy is covered under the partnership or is offered in connection with such partnership:

  (a)  This subsection shall not apply to inflation protection as required under Section 6021(a)(1)(iii)(iv) of the Federal Deficit Reduction Act of 2005;

  (b)  The inflation protection required for partnership policies, as stated under Section 6021(a)(1)(iii)(iv) of the Federal Deficit Reduction Act of 2005, shall be no less favorable than the inflation protection offered for all long-term care policies under the National Association of Insurance Commissioners' Long-Term Care Insurance Model Act and Regulation as specified in 42 U.S.C. 1917(b);

  (3)  Develop a summary notice in clear, easily understood language for the consumer purchasing qualified long-term care insurance partnership policies on the current law pertaining to asset disregard and asset tests; and

  2.  The director of the department of commerce and insurance shall promulgate rules to carry out the provisions of this section, and on the process for certifying the qualified long-term care partnership policies.  Any rule or portion of a rule, as that term is defined in section 536.010, that is created under the authority delegated in this section shall become effective only if it complies with and is subject to all of the provisions of chapter 536 and, if applicable, section 536.028.  This section and chapter 536 are nonseverable and if any of the powers vested with the general assembly pursuant to chapter 536 to review, to delay the effective date, or to disapprove and annul a rule are subsequently held unconstitutional, then the grant of rulemaking authority and any rule proposed or adopted after August 28, 2007, shall be invalid and void.
