In 2013, Oklahoma Insurance Commissioner John Doak worked with the Oklahoma Legislature to complete a major revision of the state’s captive insurance law. The Oklahoma Insurance Department Captive Insurance Division works hard to ensure that Oklahoma is the domicile of choice through modernized laws and regulations, business-friendly requirements and forms, and fast, responsive staff.
