     7  refuse  to  issue  a life insurance policy or annuity contract or adjust
     8  the amount of premiums, or rates, charged for life insurance policies or
     9  annuity contracts for any individual solely because such individual  has
    10  been prescribed medication used to block the effects of opioids, includ-
    11  ing,  but  not  limited  to,  Naloxone and Narcan, unless such action is
    12  based on sound actuarial principles or actual or reasonably  anticipated
