Florida Office of Insurance Regulation Commissioner David Altmaier released a statement following the discussion this afternoon during the House Insurance and Banking Subcommittee Meeting and Tuesday’s discussion at the Senate Banking and Insurance Committee Meeting:
“Over the last two days, I have participated in property insurance and hurricane claims discussions with members of both the House and Senate. My top priority is getting Hurricane Michael claims closed. We will review claims handling practices and identify unwarranted claim delays or denials, and take swift action against insurers violating the law.
“I understand there is a human story behind every claim and every complaint. I encourage consumers to tell their stories by calling the CFO’s Consumer Helpline at 1-877-693-5236 if they are experiencing any issues whatsoever with their claims. We are committed to making consumers whole to the fullest extent of the law.”
