Georgia insurance regulators have started working with regulators in at least 3 other states to investigate allegations of problems with insurance sales practices on military bases.[@@]
Georgia Insurance Commissioner John Oxendine recently launched an investigation of a Texas company’s efforts to sell insurance on a Fort Benning, Ga., military base.
Oxendine also asked to look at the books and records of several other companies, and now the investigation includes insurers with headquarters in California, Florida and Wisconsin, Oxendine says.
Commissioners from Florida, Illinois and Texas have joined the probe on an ad hoc basis, Oxendine adds.
“We are all cooperating and sharing information, although each state is just looking now at protecting consumers in [its] state,” Oxendine says. “Other states are likely to join in, and we welcome that.”
