Statement from NAIC President and Tennessee Insurance Commissioner Julie Mix McPeak:

The NAIC is reviewing the final rule on short-term health plans and the potential impact on our consumers and markets.

As insurance markets vary greatly state-to-state, it is critical we have maximum flexibility to address the needs of our markets while maintaining consumer protections.

Congress Extends Flood Program

The NAIC appreciates that Congress took action to pass a four-month extension of the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), avoiding a lapse in the program. The NAIC urges Congress to use this time to work towards a long-term reauthorization that supports private market development and resiliency planning. These measures would help provide consumers with additional choices and help minimize the impact of damage and economic loss. State insurance regulators stand ready to assist Congress in tackling the challenges of NFIP reauthorization and reform.
