Claremore—Oklahoma Insurance Commissioner John Doak will appear as a guest on “GC Perspectives” at 9 p.m. Friday, Nov. 4.
“With the severe weather, automobile accidents, and the effects of the economy on home ownership, insurance is serious business in Oklahoma,” says RSU Public TV Production Manager, Dale McKinney. “This week on GC Perspectives, our guest is Oklahoma Insurance Commissioner John Doak. The Oklahoma Insurance Commission covers much more than the obvious insurance issues. The list is surprising, and includes: anti-fraud, bail bonds, and real estate appraisers, as well as senior health issues, Medicare fraud, and more.
John D. Doak was sworn in as the 12th Insurance Commissioner of Oklahoma on Jan. 10, 2011.
Doak takes the next step in a distinguished career deeply grounded in providing insurance options and coverage to Oklahomans.
Doak has a lengthy history of service to the Tulsa community. He is a former board member for the Tulsa Ronald McDonald House, the Tulsa Opera, and Dillon International Adoption Agency. He also has served as a member of the Oklahoma Governor’s Round Table for Business Development.
His most recent work has been with health care in Oklahoma. Doak formally requested a health care waiver on Aug. 30. This waiver would benefit smaller insurance carriers, Oklahomans living in rural areas, and allow insurance companies operating in Oklahoma to phase in the changes incrementally over the course of three years, instead of once.
