The Insurance Division is responsible for administering the State’s Insurance Program. The Division is made up of four units: Claims, Underwriting, Loss Management and Litigation. The Division's goal is to provide statewide risk management through loss restoration (Claims), loss protection (Underwriting), loss management (Loss Control/Prevention), and loss resolution (Litigation).
The Senior Underwriting Unit manages the insurance needs of the State through self-insurance, and with the procurement of commercial insurance. Commercial insurance protects the State Insurance Trust Fund from catastrophic losses and fulfills certain statutory requirements and agency contractual agreements. The Unit analyzes commercial coverage offerings, prices, limits and deductibles and then recommends to the Treasurer the combination that best protects the State of Maryland's assets. As part of its mission to manage the State's insurance needs, the Underwriting Unit conducts an annual insurance survey to gather data on State exposures. The collected data is used to purchase commercial insurance policies and as a component for setting self-insurance premiums. This database serves as the only official record of the State’s assets.
