On August 11, Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey announced that “a major Massachusetts insurance company is paying more than $6.3 million in refunds to more than 4,500 homeowners who were improperly charged” for force-placed property insurance. According to the state’s investigation, the company unnecessarily charged some homeowners by force-placing duplicative insurance products, and overcharged others by force-placing commercial policies instead of less expensive residential policies. The company had settled with the AG’s Office in November 2015, paying $565,000 to the state and agreeing to an audit that would identify affected Massachusetts homeowners for refunds. According to the AG’s press release, the company “cooperated fully with the audit.”
