Provides that if payment is made during that period, coverage under the Act shall not be terminated for non-payment by the insurer. Provides that if an insurer terminates an owner or operator's coverage under the Act, the insurer must send a written notice to the owner or operator to inform him or her of the termination of that coverage, and that notice must include instructions on how to seek reinstatement of coverage, as well as information concerning any premiums or penalties that might be due.
