As of late, things have been even crazier than usual in the Louisiana insurance market! Costs are rising, a record number of insurance companies have left the state and there is a lot of confusing infomation being circulated. So we thought the best way for us to serve our clients and community was to provide some answers to the (7) most commonly asked insurance questions.
Question #1 "Why has my insurance cost increased?"
There are many reasons why your insurance premiums may have increased:
Hurricanes – Simply put, our areas’ exposure to hurricanes may be a driving factor in increasing your insurance premium.
Re-insurance - Most insurance companies carry their own insurance called re-insurance.
- The re-insurance carrier charges your insurance carrier a premium and a deductible which may increase after large claims due to a catastrophe. All insurance companies are in business to make a profit so the increase in their rates means an increase to you, the policyholder, the following year.
- These rate increases are not automatic. Each company must file these rates with the insurance commissioner, which must be approved.
