SACRAMENTO, Calif. — In the wake of the deadliest and most destructive wildfire in California’s history, Insurance Commissioner Dave Jones today declared an emergency situation, which allows insurance companies to use out-of-state adjusters to help handle the large volume of claims resulting from the Camp and Woolsey Fires.
In an effort to assist victims of the current wildfires throughout the state, Insurance Commissioner Dave Jones is calling on all property insurance companies to implement emergency expedited claims handling procedures and billing grace periods to help residents and businesses begin their recovery more quickly.
The California Department of Insurance has been informed by the Governor’s Office of Emergency Services (CAL-OES) that, due to the recent wildfires, there is a shortage of available lodging in the disaster areas. CAL-OES is requesting that insurance companies, adjusters, and other insurance personnel find lodging outside of the disaster areas.
OKLAHOMA DOI decides to police the entire country for license compliance. Upon my recent submission for license renewal as a Non-Resident, the DOI rep Nicki has decided to question my standing with my home state of Nevada! I am complete good standing with Nevada, and havre offered to provide a "Letter of Good Standing", which Nicki refused to accept. She is demanding my continuing education formal receipts. She refuses to accept any certificates issues by attending classes such as NFIP, Symbility, etc. In a very rude 1970's condescending government attitude, she asked if she could just cancel my request, and keep the monies I've paid! She said that she is just enforcing state statutes, and snottingly that I have 60 days to comply from her first response. REMEMBER, this was a Non Resident license. I hope she can write estimates!!
"As the nation continues to recover from the damage caused by hurricanes, floods and fires from coast to coast, we are reminded yet again that unforeseen, life-changing disasters can strike at any time. After the initial chaos subsides, it’s only natural that those affected would want to move quickly to start rebuilding their lives.
For many, the first step is a call to the insurance company, who should be able to resolve claims promptly, offering timely financial assistance when it’s needed most. But unfortunately, a complicated patchwork of state laws governing claims adjusters provides exactly the opposite: an inefficient, time-consuming, and expensive process that fails to serve the needs of consumers in the wake of a disaster."
State-run Citizens Property Insurance Corp. is hiring an outside vendor to scrutinize water-damage repair estimates from contractors, and to directly negotiate lower invoices with those contractors in exchange for a cut of the savings.
