    (a) A purchasing group may not purchase insurance from a risk retention group that is not chartered in a state or from an insurer not admitted in the state in which the purchasing group is located, unless the purchase is effected through a licensed agent or broker acting pursuant to the surplus lines laws and regulations of such state.

    (b) A purchasing group which obtains liability insurance from an insurer not admitted in this State or a risk retention group shall inform each of the members of such group which have a risk resident or located in this State that such risk is not protected by an insurance insolvency guaranty fund in this State in writing that such risk retention group or such insurer may not be subject to all insurance laws and regulations of this State.

    (c) No purchasing group may purchase insurance providing for a deductible or self-insured retention applicable to the group as a whole; however, coverage may provide for a deductible or self-insured retention applicable to individual members.
