LDI: What We Do
The Louisiana Department of Insurance (LDI) works diligently to balance the needs of insurance consumers with the insurance industry’s need to run a competitive business. As a regulator, the LDI enforces the laws that provide a fair and stable marketplace with transparent rules so one insurer does not have an unfair competitive advantage over other insurers. The LDI also works to make certain that insurers comply with all the laws in place to protect policyholders.
Louisiana is part of the U.S. insurance regulatory framework which is a highly coordinated state-based national system designed to protect policyholders and to serve the greater public interest through the effective regulation of the U.S. insurance marketplace. Through the National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC), U.S. insurance regulators establish national standards and best practices, conduct peer reviews and coordinate their regulatory oversight to better protect the interests of consumers while ensuring a strong, viable insurance marketplace.
U.S. insurance regulators also participate in the International Association of Insurance Supervisors (IAIS) along with the NAIC by participating in major standard setting initiatives, including working with fellow regulators from around the world to better supervise cross-border insurers, identifying systemic risk in the insurance sector, and creating international best practices.
