     (4) That the insured may be eligible for insurance through the assigned risk plan if his insurance is to be canceled[.]; and

     (5) In the case of liability insurance coverage, that the insured is required by law to notify the director of revenue of the cancellation within fourteen days and file evidence of current liability insurance as required under chapter 303, RSMo.

     2. An insurer shall send an insured written notice of an automobile policy renewal at least fifteen days prior to the effective date of the new policy. The notice shall be sent by first class mail and shall contain the insured's name, the vehicle covered, the total premium amount, and the effective date of the new policy."; and
