  2.  No setoff shall be allowed in favor of any person where:

  (3)  The obligation of the person is to pay an assessment levied against the members or subscribers of the insurer, or is to pay a balance upon a subscription to the capital stock of the insurer, or is in any other way in the nature of a capital contribution; or

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

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

  (6)  The obligations between the person and the insurer arise from reinsurance relationships resulting in business where either the person or the insurer has assumed risks and obligations from the other party and then has ceded back to that party substantially the same risks and obligations.

  3.  The provisions of this section shall apply to all obligations incurred under contracts entered into, renewed, or extended on or after July 1, 1992, and to any existing contract with a termination date longer than one year from January 1, 1993.
