Department Named to National Insurance Committees Tasked with Protecting Consumers and Monitoring Insurance Marketplace


 


COLUMBUS — Ohio Lieutenant Governor and Department of Insurance Director Mary Taylor has been appointed to serve on several National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC) committees and task forces.  These appointments provide the Department with opportunities to continue its mission of serving and protecting insurance consumers while fostering a competitive and solvent insurance marketplace in Ohio.
 
“Ohio will have a strong voice nationally among state regulators and we will continue to support common sense policies that protect insurance consumers and provide for a stable and competitive insurance market,” Taylor said. “I look forward to another productive year collaborating with insurance departments across the country as we push for new and innovative ways to improve insurance regulation.”
 
Taylor and the Department will serve on a total of 19 committees, including as Chair of the Examination Oversight Task Force and Vice Chair of the Life Actuarial Task Force. The committees and task forces will address issues such as protecting seniors, fighting insurance fraud, maintaining market competition, creating regulatory efficiencies and monitoring the financial solvency of insurers. 
 
The NAIC is an organization of insurance regulators from the 50 states, the District of Columbia and the five U.S. territories.  The NAIC provides a forum for the development of uniform policy when uniformity is appropriate.  To learn more about the NAIC, visit www.naic.org.
