National Association of Insurance Commissioners Names Commissioner Mulready Chair of Health Insurance and Managed Care (B) Committee
OKLAHOMA CITY – The National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC) announced last week that Oklahoma Insurance Commissioner Glen Mulready would serve as chair of the NAIC Health Insurance and Managed Care (B) Committee for the 2022 term.
“I’m humbled by the opportunity to serve in this role and I want to thank NAIC President Dean Cameron for his confidence in selecting me to chair this important committee,” Commissioner Mulready said. “Health insurance continues to be a priority concern for consumers and I look forward to working with my colleagues and federal officials to make health insurance more affordable and accessible not only for Oklahoma but also for the rest of the nation.”
Commissioner Mulready also serves as Chair of the NAIC/Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Advisory Group and Chair of the Midwest Zone, which represents 13 states and is part of the NAIC Executive Committee.
The NAIC is the U.S. standard-setting and regulatory support organization created and governed by insurance regulators from all 50 states, the District of Columbia and five U.S. territories. Through the NAIC, state insurance regulators establish standards and best practices, conduct a peer review and coordinate regulatory oversight.
The mission of the Health Insurance and Managed Care (B) Committee is to analyze policy implications and their effect on the states of proposed and enacted federal legislation and regulations as well as examine factors that contribute to rising health care costs and insurance premiums. More information about the (B) Committee can be found at https://content.naic.org/cmte_b.htm.
