Insurance is one of the most highly regulated industries out there (even more so than banking). It's also almost entirely regulated by state insurance commissions (-> many arcane one-off regulations, and a fair amount of political games). Take the regulatory difficulties Uber, etc. are running into, and multiply by 100.
