How to Submit a Public Information Request
The Maryland Insurance Administration's Public Information Act regulations require that you submit a written request. After deciding what type of record you want, you may send your written request by mail, fax or email to the person whose name appears on the contact chart for the record you want.
You may submit your Public Information Act request through our Public Records Center. Requests also may be emailed to PIArequests.email@example.com or mailed to the Public Affairs Office, Maryland Insurance Administration, 200 St. Paul Place, Suite 2700, Baltimore, MD 21202-2272. Your written request should include your name and address, and a description of the record(s) you wish to review.
Tips for a Faster Response
- Be as accurate as possible when you describe the record you wish to review. If you want to review a record on an insurance carrier, an insurance agency or an individual in the insurance business, please provide the exact name of the company or individual.
- You do not need to provide us with your telephone number or an email address when you submit your request. However, if you do, it may help us to expedite our response if we need to talk to you.
- We sometimes receive requests for extremely large volumes of records. While we try to be as responsive as possible, we can respond more quickly, and at a lower charge to you, when you ask only for a small or moderate amount of records. You may want to be as specific as possible to narrow the scope of your request.
- If you have a particular date by which you need to receive your requested documents, please indicate that in your written request and the agency will try to accommodate you.
