The Maryland Insurance Administration‘s goal is to provide efficient, effective service to both the consumers of insurance products and the insurance industry. Th​e Maryland Insurance Administration best serves its core constituents by ensuring fair treatment of consumers. This consumer protection begins by regulating the availability of insurance coverage at fair prices and extends to issues of solvency and fair sales, claims and settlement practices.

The agency strives to increase public understanding of the vital role insurance plays in the daily lives of Maryland residents and businesses. Insurance is the principal means of managing risks. While it is not possible to eliminate risks arising from poor health, auto accidents, home damage and other unexpected occurrences, you may minimi​ze its impact by purchasing appropriate insurance coverage.
