Mike Causey took the oath of office for his second term as North Carolina’s Insurance Commissioner on January 9, 2021.
Causey was sworn in by North Carolina Chief Justice Paul Newby in a socially distanced ceremony on the Executive Mansion grounds.
He pledged to spend the next four years working tirelessly to make insurance more transparent in North Carolina, to maintain a healthy insurance market and to protect insurance consumers throughout the state.
Causey’s priorities for the term include increasing efforts to fight insurance fraud, increasing transparency in health insurance, health care billing and prescription drug pricing, promoting hands-free legislation to increase driving safety and increasing support for the fire service.
He will also seek to mitigate potential flood damage by encouraging consumers to purchase flood insurance, having worked with the North Carolina Rate Bureau to provide a private policy in the state as an alternative to the National Flood Insurance Program.
