Insfrán enrolled at the National University of the Northeast, and earned a degree in veterinary science. He was elected to the Provincial Legislature in 1983, and in 1987, he became Vice Governor of Formosa under Governor Vicente Joga, serving for two terms.
Insfrán replaced Joga and became Governor of Formosa in 1995, with former governor Floro Bogado as his own vice-governor. He subsequently fell out with Joga, who unsuccessfully appealed changes in Formosa's laws allowing Insfrán to be re-elected indefinitely in front of the Supreme Court of Argentina. Insfrán was re-elected in 1999, 2003 and again in 2007. Having been close to former President Carlos Menem, Insfrán later became close until 2008 to former President Néstor Kirchner, who defeated Menem in 2003 and was the leader of the Justicialist Party.
