The North Carolina Department of Insurance (NCDOI) will hold a meeting in Boone to discuss disaster preparedness and relief, among other topics.
It will take place Wednesday July 10 in the Watauga High School Auditorium starting at 7pm.
Insurance Commissioner Mike Causey is scheduling Town Hall meetings across the state to help citizens avoid the devastation that followed last year’s Hurricane Florence.
NCDOI recommends asking yourself the following questions: Does your insurance policy have you covered? Do you know how insurance companies define a flood? Do you know the waiting period when buying a flood policy? Do you know how to get help once the flood waters rise or you experience a mudflow?
NCDOI representatives will be on hand to help with your questions and if you are someone still suffering in the aftermath of Hurricane Florence they can help with that too.
In addition to disaster preparedness and relief, there will be experts presenting on these topics:
- How the NCDOI can help you in your county with Medicare questions. (It’s free!)
- How we can help with denied health insurance claims and appeals. (It’s free!)
- How we can help with property or casualty claims. (It’s free!)
- How everyone can help in the campaign to reduce insurance fraud (which can hold down rates!)
Chief Deputy Commissioner of Insurance Dr. Michelle Osborne will direct the meetings in your area. Please invite your friends and neighbors, bring your questions, and be prepared!
Another meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, September 18 from 8:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m at Appalachian State University.
Brantley Risk and Insurance Center, 3053 Peacock Hall.
