The prohibition in N.C. Gen. Stat. s. 58-51-16 prohibits intoxication exclusions in a "medical expense policy," which means an "accident and health insurance policy that provides hospital, medical, and surgical expense coverage." Intoxication exclusions are not expressly prohibited in other types of "accident and health insurance policies," such as an accident insurance policy that provides for fixed sum payments or wage replacement.
