(b) No setoff, except as provided in K.S.A. 40-3602, and amendments thereto, shall be allowed in favor of any person where:

(1) The obligation of the insurer to the person would not at the date of the filing of a petition for liquidation entitle the person to share as a claimant in the assets of the insurer;

(2) the obligation of the insurer to the person was purchased by or transferred to the person with a view to its being used as a setoff;

(3) the obligation of the insurer is owed to an affiliate of such person, or any other entity or association other than the person;

(c) The receiver shall provide persons with accounting statements identifying debts which are currently due and payable. Accounts currently due and payable as identified by such accounting statements shall be promptly paid to the receiver.
