Maryland Enacts Comprehensive Public Adjuster Legislation

Maryland HB 136 was enacted on April 11, 2017, and takes effect on January 1st 2018.
This new law, enacted after gathering data from public meetings with industry representatives and the Maryland Insurance Administration, makes sweeping changes to the Maryland Public Adjuster Act. For the most part, Maryland adopted provisions of the NAIC Model Act, with variations that “Marylandize” that Act, establish parity with other licensed insurance professionals in Maryland, and ensure consumer protection. AAPIA is proud to have testified in favor of this legislation.
