What is the LA Dept of Insurance?

The LA Department of Insurance is a state agency created by the Louisiana Legislature and headed by a  statewide elected Commissioner of Insurance. One of the major functions of the Department is to
make sure you get the insurance coverage you are paying for. The Department constantly monitors and regulates the insurance industry to ensure your insurance will be there when you need it.

The licensing process is the key way the Department of Insurance regulates insurers. To write insurance in the state, an insurance company must file an application with the Department of Insurance requesting permission to write specific kinds of insurance under specific guidelines. Background checks are done on the people involved in the company to make sure they meet the high standards the Department has set for the insurance industry.
The Licensing and Compliance Division of the Department of Insurance takes care of licensing both companies and agents. To remain in business, companies must file quarterly and annual reports for review  by the Department.
