Insurance is regulated at the State level. Not the Federal level.It has been this way since 1945. This was established by the McCarran-Ferguson Act."The McCarran Ferguson Act was passed by Congress in 1945. Subject to certain conditions, the McCarran Act essentially returned insurance regulation to the states.

They will regulate all types of insurance that conduct business with in the state. Most insurance departments have a consumer division that can answer questions and address complaints.Source(s):Insurance Adjuster 12 years
