Insurance Consumer Advocate

Florida lawmakers want to change the way homeowners manage insurance claims.

Residents throughout Florida are receiving notices that a private insurer is taking over their state run home insurance policies.  Homeowners are not required to make the switch, though.

While state-backed Citizens Insurance shifts policies into the private sector, critics are expressing concern about the quality of new coverage.  Florida Insurance Consumer Advocate Robin Westcott said consumers still have options.
