Agency History

The Texas State Board of Insurance regulates the state's insurance and fire prevention industries primarily under the provisions of the Texas Insurance Code, the basic objectives of which are to ensure the financial soundness of the insurance industry and to protect the insurance consumer. The board appoints, with the consent of the senate, the commissioner of insurance, who acts as the executive and administrative officer of the agency. Associate commissioners, under the direction of the commissioner, oversee operations of four of the agency's major programs: the Regulated Lines and Licensing Program, the Financial Program, the Compliance Program and the Administrative Services Program. Under the Regulated Lines and Licensing Program is the Insurance-Related Activities Section whose duties include the regulation of health maintenance organizations. All health maintenance organizations (HMOs) must operate in compliance with the Health Maintenance Organization Act (HMO Act), enacted in 1975 in regular session of the 64th Legislature, Senate Bill 180.
