"Consumers expect their insurance companies to come through for them in times of need and when that doesn't happen we want to know about it. Whether it's a dispute over health insurance or a homeowner's claim, this Department holds carriers accountable when they fail to adhere to state laws and regulations," said Commissioner Thomas B. Leonardi. "I encourage anyone with a complaint or question to contact the Department and utilize the resources we have to assist you in resolution."
The department has received more than 1,500 complaints.
