Hundreds in Helena today

HELENA – Montana Insurance Commissioner Monica J. Lindeen will welcome nearly 450 insurance professionals to Helena today for Montana’s first Insurance Summit.
The day-long event, featuring a lunchtime speech by Sen. Jon Tester, D-Mont., will address emerging issues in insurance, including:

  • How insurance companies and regulators are responding to recent data breaches at health insurance companies – and what the industry and government can do to protect against future breaches
  • How Montana’s health insurance market is changing
  • How the 2015 Montana Legislature affected the state’s insurance industry
  • How recent damaging hail storms have affected the insurance industry – and Montanans buying insurance

Nearly 450 people have signed up for the event.

“Insurance is a significant part of the Montana economy and has a large impact on the lives of Montanans,” Lindeen said. “For the first time, this type of summit brings together hundreds of people working in this industry for a day of learning and collaboration and helps further our collective goal of ensuring a viable insurance market for all Montanans.”

The Summit begins at 8 a.m. at the Helena Great Northern Hotel in Helena at 835 Great Northern Blvd. It concludes at 4:30.

The event has proven popular. More than twice as many people signed up for the Summit than first anticipated.

Press is welcome, but public registration is now closed.
