Public Information Act Requests

 

The spirit of the Maryland Public Information Act is to disclose to you, the general public, as much information as possible about the workings of your State of Maryland government. You may have access to and receive copies of many of the records in the custody of the Maryland Insurance Administration. Please review the following sections to learn more, including how to submit a Public Information Act request, and to see a list of some of the documents that the Maryland Insurance Administration can release to you. If you read this website's description of the various Maryland Insurance Administration divisions, that might help you to decide what types of records you want to review under the Public Information Act.

The Public Information Act laws for State of Maryland agencies are located in the Maryland Annotated Code's State Government Article, beginning at section 10-611 and ending in section 10-628. These laws apply to the Maryland Insurance Administration. Laws in the Insurance Article of the Maryland Annotated Code also apply to the manner in which the Maryland Insurance Administration responds to Maryland Public Information Act requests. Finally, there are also regulations that govern the way the Maryland Insurance Administration handles its Public Information Act requests. These regulations can be found in the Code of Maryland Regulations (COMAR) at Title 31, Subtitle 02, Chapter 05.

Before submitting your Public Information Act request, you may wish to receive a copy of the some of the Consumer Publications that the Maryland Insurance Administration provides. 

In addition, the agency posts many of the regular documents it generates under the Public Documents page. You may wish to review those postings before filing a request.
