The documents listed below are some of the documents that you may review at the Maryland Insurance Administration's offices or that we can send to you. 

If you wish to review the documents at our offices or obtain copies, you must first submit a written request through our Public Records Center, or by mail, fax or email and indicate that you wish to review the records at the Maryland Insurance Administration's offices. We will contact you to make an appointment with you for your review. If you visit our offices and have not advised us ahead of time, we may need to ask you to return at another time. This is due to different times when necessary staff members are available to help you and the accessibility and location of different types of records.

If you wish to request records from more than one department of the Maryland Insurance Administration, or if the record that you want is not shown on the chart, you may contact Public Information Act Coordinator Vivian Laxton at 410-468-2007 or 410-468-2020 (fax).

There are certain records that the Maryland Insurance Administration does not, or cannot, release to you in accordance with Maryland and federal laws and regulations. When we do not release these records, it is often because:

  • We need to protect the privacy of individuals who have asked the Maryland Insurance Administration for help in dealing with an insurance problem;
  • We need to preserve fair competition among insurance carriers, which, in turn, benefits the public; or
  • We need to allow the Maryland Insurance Administration's staff to participate in candid discussions and to carry on investigations in a confidential manner for the public welfare.

 

If you request a record that the Maryland Insurance Administration does not release to you, we will provide you, in writing, with the reason we did not release the record, the law or regulation that governs the non-disclosure of the record, and your rights of appeal.
