Examination & Audit Unit Frequently Asked Questions During the COVID-19 Emergency

​As of March 19, 2020

How should Maryland-domiciled insurers file Annual Statement supplemental filings or holding company filings (Forms A, B, C, C, E and F) that were previously sent by mail to the Maryland Insurance Administration (MIA)?  

Completed Annual Statement supplemental filings or holding company filings (Forms A, B, C, C, E and F) should be submitted to the Maryland Insurance Administration via email at: holdingcompanyfiling.mia@maryland.gov.
Questions regarding Annual Statement filings or holding company filings submitted by Maryland-domiciled insurers should be directed to Lynn Beckner, Chief Financial Analyst, at 410-468-2126.
 
Have there been any change in the MIA’s handling of litigation filings against insurance companies?
 
Any insurance company licensed in Maryland is required to name the Insurance Commissioner as its agent for receipt of certain court filings.  This is referred to as “service of process,” which has been a long-standing function of the Commissioner.  At this time, there are no changes to how this role is functioning.  The MIA has put into place procedures that will allow the continuation of its service of process role during this period in as prompt a manner as possible during the current COVID-19 emergency.
 
Special Note: The Maryland Insurance Administration remains fully operational during the COVID-19 emergency. If you would like to file an insurance complaint, please use our online portal: https://enterprise.insurance.maryland.gov/consumer/ConsumerPortalWelcomePage.aspx
