Erica J. Bailey to Lead Maryland Insurance Administration’s Compliance and Enforcement Unit

BALTIMORE – Maryland Insurance Commissioner Al Redmer, Jr. announced today the appointment of Erica J. Bailey, Esquire as the Maryland Insurance Administration’s new Associate Commissioner, Compliance and Enforcement. Ms. Bailey brings 15 years of experience to the team, including the last ten investigating healthcare fraud as a prosecutor.
 
As Associate Commissioner, Ms. Bailey will oversee the team responsible for regulatory oversight of domestic and foreign insurance companies, insurance producers, title agents, public adjusters and bail bondsmen operating in Maryland. The Compliance and Enforcement Unit’s primary mission is to protect consumers from deceptive marketing, unfair claim settlement practices, underwriting and premium rating abuses, and misrepresentation of insurance coverage. The Unit enforces regulatory compliance by companies and insurance producers with applicable state laws and regulations. The Unit also oversees the licensing of insurance producers.

 “Erica is a highly talented litigator well versed in the insurance industry and its issues,” said Commissioner Redmer. “She’s the perfect choice to lead our Compliance and Enforcement team and I’m pleased to welcome her to the State.”

Prior to joining the Insurance Administration, Bailey served most recently as Attorney Advisor in the District of Columbia Office of the Inspector General, Medicaid Fraud Control Unit. In that capacity, she led a global team tasked with investigating Medicaid fraud allegations and prosecuting cases. Previously, Bailey managed the Virginia Attorney General’s Medicaid Fraud Control Unit’s eDiscovery and litigation support team, as well as the Civil Investigations Unit.

Bailey received her Juris Doctor from George Washington University Law School and her Bachelor of Arts degree in French & English from Rutgers University. She is a member of the bar in New York, Virginia, and the United States District Court for both the Eastern and Western Districts of Virginia.
