A State-by-State Guide

State regulators governing health plans

      Here's how to get in touch with the agency that regulates your health plan or insurance policies. In most states, your health plan will be covered either by a division within the health department or by the insurance department. You may have to check with both agencies to figure out which one covers your plan.
