Maryland Insurance Laws and Regulations

The Maryland Insurance Administration develops and enforces insurance laws for the state. Consumers can contact the department with questions and complaints about their auto and home insurance. If you do not receive the service you expect from your insurer, you can file a complaint directly with the Maryland Insurance Administration. The state of Maryland does not share complaint information for consumers to use when making purchase decisions.
