Newest Commissioner Committed to Financial Viability and Affordability

New Commissioner, Gary D. Anderson, is the GIC’s Division of Insurance designee.  In this role, he has the dual objectives of ensuring health plans are financially viable and also affordable.  Slightly over 20 percent of the GIC’s insureds are in insured health plans under the DOI’s purview.  “It is the role of the Division to ensure there are products in the market that are accessible and affordable, and we strive to monitor the market to make sure it is healthy and competitive and that the carriers fulfill the promises they make to their insureds,” says Commissioner Anderson.

Commissioner Anderson joined the DOI in 2014 as its first Deputy Commissioner.  In this role, he oversees the Division’s daily operations.  Prior to joining the Division, he was the Policy Advisor and Senior Counsel for the Massachusetts State Senate President’s office.  He also worked as the General Counsel in the Office of Senator Anthony Petruccelli, and was a broker/agent in the private sector. “I recognize the affordability challenges faced in the market, and look forward to working with the other commissioners to help tackle these issues,” he says.  Welcome Commissioner Anderson!
