The legislation differs depending on which country and region you are in. Some regions/country provide a state-run health insurance, so companies are not required to have one.…

There are many good health insurance companies. Some are indemnity companies and some are managed care, such as HMOs and PPO's. Costs differ depending upon the company, the ch…oices of provider offered, and the number of people to be insured under the policy. There is no "best" health insurer. People like or dislike certain ones based mainly upon their own experiences with claims and customer service. You can get the names of health insurers that are authorized to engage in business in your state by contacting the office of the state insurance regulator. Alternatively, you can contact a local, licensed health insurance agent or broker who represents one or more health insurers. It is extremely important to deal only with "authorized" health insurers. These are those who have been licensed to transact health insurance business in your state. By going through the licensing process, the insurer must demonstrate, among other things, financial soundness.
There is really no "top" health insurance company. People like or dislike their insurers depending upon many factors, including the manner in which claims are handled and cust…omer service. They also weigh the amount of choice that they are given in the available physicians that they can use. In all events, it is critical that you deal only with an insurer that is authorized to transact health insurance in your state. This means that they are licensed by the state insurance regulator and have undergone scrutiny as to its financial condition, staffing, the background of management, and other factors.
In USA, Insurance is mostly regulated by states. Each state has insurance commissioner that regulates Life, health, property/casualty insurers, etc. Many federal laws (such as… Serbanes-Oxley (SoX), Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA), etc.), and federal agencies (such as IRS, SEC, etc.) also have a hand in regulating insurance companies. To help make insurance more uniform across the USA, National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC) proposes regulation, which then each state's legislators have to approve. More information can be found on NAIC web site:http:/www.naic.org/topics/topic_federal_insurance_regulator.htm
Millions of people work for health insurance companies across theUS. These range from local representatives to high level managementand CEOs.
I believe it's over 300 or over 3000... If the government would allow interstate commerce laws apply to insurance companies, then that would force free market competition, the…refore forcing these companies to lower all premiums.
Everyone has their own opinion on what company is the best based on their personal experience. I work in insurance for a group of doctors and my best experiences have been wit…h United Health Care and Aetna . Technically there is not one company that is better than other per se. The strength of your coverage depends more on the options that the company you work for offers. Of course the better plans are going to more expensive on the front end.
The five largest firms would be Blue Cross or Blue Sheild, Aetna Inc, CIGNA Corporation which coveres over 9 million people, UnitedHealth Group Incorporated and Wellpoint Inc.…

Insurance is presently regulated by State law (not Federal). Each State prescribes statutory requirements that must be followed in order to enter the business of insurance. St…ate insurance regulators are particularly concerned with issues of solvency, to ensure that the insurer will have sufficient funds to pay claims as they accrue. Therefore, the specific answer to your question depends upon which State in which the insurer will be domiciled.
