Upcoming Meetings:

Colorado Division of Insurance Homeowners’ Insurance Stakeholder Meeting RESCHEDULED to October 21

Post Date: 10/07/2022 12:30 PM

As part of legislation passed earlier this year by the Colorado Legislature (SB22-206 – Disaster Preparedness And Recovery Resources), the Colorado Division of Insurance (DOI) was tasked with conducting studies concerning homeowners’ insurance. These studies are to be focused on the availability of homeowners’ insurance, the stability of the market, and the particular issue of underinsurance.

As the DOI undertakes these studies, it also wants to hear from stakeholders regarding the study topics, so the Division is holding a virtual stakeholder meeting. Previously scheduled for Thursday, Oct. 13, the meeting has been RESCHEDULED to Friday, October 21 from 11:30 AM to 1:00 PM.

Register now for the RESCHEDULED Oct. 21 meeting.

Anyone who was registered for the Oct. 13 meeting will now need to re-register for this rescheduled event. Once registered, you will receive information from Zoom on how to join the meeting.

The DOI is looking forward to hearing from consumers who have been impacted by various issues with homeowners’ insurance, and not just Marshall survivors. As wildfires have become a regular occurrence in past years, the Division welcomes input from anyone who has run into insurance problems in any wildfires. The Division also would like to hear from community and consumer advocacy groups and insurance professionals on these topics.

Find more information about insurance and the Marshall Fire in the yellow banner on the homepage of the Division’s website at doi.colorado.gov.

For questions about this meeting, contact the Division’s Consumer Services Team at 303-894-7490 or DORA_Insurance@state.co.us.

EnergySmart Weekly Office Hours  – Wednesdays at 5pm 
Starting July 20th, EnergySmart will host open office hours on Wednesdays from 5-6pm for residents to join a Zoom call where you can get your questions about the incentives that are available and how to access them, building science, construction strategies, specific material choices, and cost effectiveness answered.
Maximizing Rebuilding Incentives – August 3, 6-7pm 
At the August 3 workshop, attendees will learn about the key decision points in the rebuilding process and when to make those decisions to maximize the incentives offered, including when to apply for rebates, grants, loans and when to bring in energy raters, builders and other members of the rebuilding team. Next, attendees will hear from a panel of energy raters about how raters work with homeowners and builders to maximize the energy efficiency of the home design. The August 3 workshop will include experts from Xcel Energy and the Colorado Energy Office to answer questions about the rebates, incentives, grants and loans available for rebuilding.

The Colorado Division of Insurance (DOI) is hosting another virtual town hall (via Zoom) for people impacted by the Marshall Fire. This town hall on Thursday, May 19th, 5:00 – 7:00 pm, will focus on the issue of underinsurance and the information recently released by the DOI on that topic.

The Division will be joined by some of the builders rebuilding homes in Boulder County, to talk about what they are hearing and seeing regarding underinsurance. In addition, a representative from the U.S. Small Business Administration will join to discuss SBA home disaster loans.

While the Division will discuss the information on underinsurance that was shared in late April, we will also review the commitments insurance companies made on key issues that we announced in March.

This will be the first of two town halls to address underinsurance and other recent information from the DOI. Because the number of guests joining the May 19 event will limit the number of questions we can take, a second town hall, on Thursday, June 2, will be primarily devoted to taking questions from Marshall Fire survivors.

Register to attend these meetings using the buttons below. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.

Register for May 19 Town Hall – Underinsurance Discussion Pt. 1 

Register for June 2 Town Hall – Underinsurance Discussion Pt. 2 

Spanish translation and ASL interpretation will be made available for these meetings. These town halls will be recorded and posted to the DOI website for people who are unable to participate.
