Report Suggests DOI, DMHC Should Become One Agency
The California Department of Insurance and the state Department of Managed Health Care should be consolidated into one agency, according to a new report by the California HealthCare Foundation and Kelch Policy Group. CHCF publishes California Healthline. California is the only state that has two regulatory agencies for insurance plans. The report suggests that the state could move individual and small-group coverage to DMHC's umbrella or require Covered California to work solely with health plans licensed by DMHC.
