(b) The insurance procured shall not include any insurance described in subdivisions (1) through (4) of section 44-201, except that this subdivision shall not prohibit the procurement of disability insurance that has a benefit limit in excess of any benefit limit available from an admitted insurer;

(c) Not later than thirty days after the effective date of such insurance, the insured shall provide, in writing, his or her permission for such insurance to be written in a nonadmitted insurer and his or her acknowledgment that, in the event of the insolvency of such insurer, the policy will not be covered by the Nebraska Property and Liability Insurance Guaranty Association; and

(d) Compliance with section 44-5511.

(2) A surplus lines licensee seeking to procure or place nonadmitted insurance for an exempt commercial purchaser whose home state is the State of Nebraska shall not be required to make a due diligence search to determine whether the full amount or type of insurance sought by such exempt commercial purchaser can be obtained from admitted insurers if:

(a) The surplus lines licensee procuring or placing the insurance has disclosed to the exempt commercial purchaser that such insurance may or may not be available from the admitted market that may provide greater protection with more regulatory oversight; and

(b) The exempt commercial purchaser has subsequently requested in writing the surplus lines licensee to procure or place such insurance for a nonadmitted insurer.
