Jurisdiction of the IDOI

The IDOI has the authority to regulate (i.e. license, review rates and policies, review financial statements, investigate complaints, conduct examinations and issue orders/penalties) all insurance companies, producers, premium finance companies, motor clubs and HMO's that are licensed to conduct business in Indiana.

Generally, Indiana law does not apply to insurance contracts (or policies) issued in other states. For example, if your policy was issued in Ohio, then Ohio law and not Indiana law applies to your coverage. In these instances, you will need to contact the Regulator in that state for assistance.

In addition, employer self-funded plans also fall outside of the agency's jurisdiction. Self-funded plans are those where your employer pays for your medical expenses, rather than contracting with a health plan to do so. The U.S. Division of Labor regulates self-funded plans, and therefore, has the authority to investigate and resolve complaints against such plans.

The IDOI does not have jurisdiction over federal programs such as the Federal Employee Health Benefit Program (FEHBP), Medicare, Medicaid, HIP, Workers Compensation and Social Security. Please contact the appropriate regulatory authority for additional information on these programs.
