Acting Director Named for Illinois Department of Insurance

A new leader is coming for the Illinois Department of Insurance.


This week Governor JB Pritzker announced that State Senator Ann Gillespie from Arlington Heights would take over as the acting director of the agency. Currently the Governor is pushing for broad changes to the regulation of the health insurance industry. Pritzker says there isn’t a connection to her entry to the position and his proposed changes.



The Health Care Protection act if passed would allow the department to approve or reject health insurance rate increases for some plans and insurers.
