Insurance Commissioner Jim Donelon says nearly 234,000 people covered by the state's insurer of last resort are getting $40 refund checks - and many are calling to find out if it's for real.
Louisiana's insurance commissioner is reminding taxpayers to claim the Louisiana Citizens Property Insurance Assessment rebate this tax season.
Insurance Commissioner Jim Donelon's office says the number of people in Louisiana who won't be able to keep their current insurance coverage because of the federal health overhaul has dropped to 62,000.
Louisiana Citizens Property Insurance Corp. may have to return $16 million to homeowner customers who, for years, were charged a $65 application fee without their knowledge.
Donelon says many people getting those letters and checks are calling the Insurance Department and Citizens to verify that the refund is legitimate.
He says checks have been issued to 233,868 policy holders.
