Montana State Auditor Matt Rosendale hosted around 350 insurance industry professionals from around the state in Helena on Wednesday at the Best Western Premier Great Northern Hotel.

The auditor is the state’s insurance commissioner and Rosendale said the event is an opportunity for his office to develop relationships with insurance providers.

He said state agencies will have to work together with the industry to improve services for Montana consumers.

“Our office wants to be open and accessible, to have an open line of communications in both directions,” he said.

Rosendale opened the summit with a presentation on the state of Montana’s insurance industry.

He said Montana’s health insurance market is stronger than those in many other states and he offered assurances that all three providers will be able to maintain their services through 2018, whether or not the federal government continues cost-sharing payments under the Affordable Care Act.
