New system rates insurance
Washington state insurance commissioner Mike Kreidler has launched the annual Complaint Comparison Guide, a new web-based tool that allows consumers to search online for their auto, health and home insurance company and compare the volume of complaints to other companies.
A Complaint Comparison Guide can be generated for health, private passenger auto and homeowners insurance for the years 2005 on back to 2003. Depending on which line of insurance is selected, a report will be generated which shows the company, the number of complaints, the complaint index, the company’s market share and how much premium it has collected.
Consumers who have questions about their insurance coverage or who wish to file a complaint against their insurance company can call the Insurance Consumer Hotline at 800/562-6900.
