Insurance Companies Can't Up Rates
Insurance companies will no longer be allowed to jack up your rates without careful scrutiny from the Texas Department of Insurance. The Federal government now requires that States interfere if there is an “unreasonable” rate increase. State insurance officials say they’re concerned they don’t have the resources for regular review, and the Federal government hasn’t defined what “unreasonable” is. But the State has recieved a million dollars from the federal government ot help with the review process.
