If you want to be an insurance disaster liaison in New York state, you might want to keep a toothbrush in your pocket.[@@]
The New York department has spelled out disaster liaison requirements in Circular Letter Number 23 (2005), which applies to health carriers in the state.
The department already has issued a disaster planning circular letter for property-casualty insurers in 2004, and it says it hopes to issue a letter for life insurers later this year.
New York State Insurance Superintendent Howard Mills says in the health carrier letter that health carriers should file disaster preparedness plans each year.
