The California Department of Insurance is dedicated to providing insurance for all California State Residents. They regulate and provide licences to insurance companies, agents, and brokers and hold the authority of how insurance businesses conduct themselves. 

Their website provides information for businesses, agents, or brokers on how to obtain a licence and legal information. They also offer seniors information on health insurance benefits, long term health care, and information on insurance policies before purchasing insurance. 

The department not only works in health insurance but also auto, and residential insurance. If you would like more information or want to learn about the licensing process you can visit their website
