The Idaho Department of Insurance has set up a new Wildfire Claim Information webpage including fact sheets for filing an insurance claim and rebuilding after a fire, consumer tips on claims, contact information for insurance carriers, and a link to wildfire updates. The information can be accessed by a link on the Department’s homepage.
“Our hearts go out to the families who have lost so much,” says Department Director Dean Cameron. “We stand ready to assist in any way we can as they move forward to recover from the devastation.”
The Department is a free resource for people who are trying to figure out what to do about their insurance. Consumers are encouraged to contact a Consumer Affairs Officer with questions or complaints about the claims process. In the Boise area, call 334-4250. Statewide, call 800-721-3272 toll free.
