Activists get Fair Plan rate hearing postponed to 1/19/12

Attorney General asks for delay in hearing

At the request of consumer advocates and with the support of several local Legislators, the Attorney General filed a motion to postpone the hearing on the more than 1,500 page Fair Plan rate filing and today the Division of Insurance agreed to postpone the hearing.

“Please be informed that the hearing that was to take place at 10:00 a.m. on December 19, 2011, as previously set forth in the notice of hearing initially issued on November 16, 2011 (“Initial Hearing Notice”), has been rescheduled and will now take place at 10:00 a.m. on January 19, 2012”

So instead of having a little over a month to review the rate filing during the holiday season, all parties involved have a much more reasonable amount of time to prepare for the hearing.

The Attorney General’s office provided Paula Aschettino of Citizens for Homeowner Insurance Reform and I copies of the rate filing on a CD which will make review of the massive filing much easier.

We still need citizens to attend the hearing and are chartering a bus to transport people to and from Boston.

If anyone would like to attend the hearing please contact Paula through Citizens for Homeowner Insurance Reform or myself at [email protected] welcomes thoughtful comments and the varied opinions of our readers.
