The merger of the Health Insurance Commission with the Health Practice Commission took effect on the 1st July, 2008 to form the Department of Health Regulatory Services.

Mission Statement

The Health Insurance Commission (HIC) mission is to ensure that the provision of health insurance in the Cayman Islands is well regulated and that assistance is provided to the general public in resolving complaints relating to the provision of health insurance.

Role / Function

The role of the HIC is to monitor and regulate the health insurance industry in the Cayman Islands. The functions of the commission include the assessment and monitoring of premium rates, the administration of the Segregated Insurance Fund (SIF), monitoring the conduct of approved insurers, resolving complaints and advising the Minister generally on any matter relating to health insurance including advice on amendments to the Health Insurance Law and Regulations.



DHRS comprising of the Health Practice Commission (“HPC”) and Health Insurance Commission (“HIC”) wishes to inform its valued customers and the general public of the changes to our business process.
Following today’s (March 24, 2020) announcement of our first COVID-19 case without travel history, suggesting that we now have evidence of transmission of the virus within our community, the Cayman Islands is preparing to transition to “Level 4” in our pandemic response.

Given this, the DHRS wishes to advise that our offices will be closed as of tomorrow, Wednesday, 25th March, 2020 until Monday, April 6, 2020 or otherwise directed by the Cayman Islands Government.
