CHANGES I WANT TO MAKE AT THE NCDOI.
Mission of the North Carolina Department of Insurance- I believe that there needs to be a reassignment of the Mission of the North Carolina Department of Insurance. The Mission of the Department should focus on the support and protection of the Consumers of Insurance Products in the State of North Carolina, not the Insurance Companies who do business in the State of North Carolina.
Inspector General- I will move to establish an Inspector General within the N.C. Department of Insurance that will intervene in any potential criminal activities that arise within the Department.
Non-Compete/Cooling Off Period- I will move to establish a rule in the N.C. Department of Insurance that any employee who leaves the NCDOI must wait a minimum of 3 years before being employed by ANY operation that is regulated by the Department.
Homeowner- Contractor Shared Responsibility- I will work to establish in the N.C. Department of Insurance a regulation, by working with the General Assembly, to establish a “shared responsibility” of liability between the property owner and the contractor on projects under regulation of the Department.
Medicaid- Being that Medicaid is by definition an “Insurance Product”, I will work to move operational oversight of the North Carolina Medicaid Programs under the North Carolina Department of Insurance.
