Introduction

The Division of Insurance, as part of a statewide effort, is undertaking a review of all of its existing regulations to determine whether there is a clearly identified need for continuing to retain the particular regulation, including: whether any costs associated with the regulation exceed the benefits that result from the particular regulation; whether the regulation exceeds federal requirements or duplicate local requirements; whether less restrictive alternatives to the particular regulation exist; and whether the regulation unduly and adversely affects Massachusetts citizens and consumers, or the competitive environment in Massachusetts.

As part of its regulation review, the Division scheduled a series of public comment sessions that took place in August 2015 to receive comments from the general public and interested industry members concerning the Division’s existing regulations; different subject-matter groups of regulations were discussed at each of the six sessions, and the list of regulations discussed at each session is set forth below. All of the public sessions were held at the Division of Insurance, 1000 Washington Street, Boston, in Hearing Room 1-E, and the sessions were audio recorded. 

Members of the public and industry were invited to attend and make oral comments during the sessions. In addition, written comments were encouraged with respect to any or all of the regulations. 

Written comments that were submitted to the Division are posted on this page under the appropriate session heading. 

Audio recordings of the sessions are available upon request. For those interested in receiving copies of the audio recordings may submit a request to DOIregreview2015@state.ma.us
