Residents still struggling with insurance companies over Hurricane Ida damage can now get help from the state.
The Louisiana Department of Insurance announced a new mediation program Monday to help policyholders with residential insurance claims up to $50,000.
“I’m confident this new mediation program will be helpful in solving claim disputes between insurers and policyholders and getting people what they need to put their homes and lives back in order,” said Commissioner Jim Donelon.
Ida, a massive Category 4 storm, hit Louisiana in late August, causing an estimated $27-40 billion in damage to the Gulf Coast.
