Say No to the Insurance Immunity Act (SB1628)
Policyholders pay premiums in exchange for a promise from their insurance company that claims will be paid in full and on time. Too often insurers fail to hold up their end of the bargain by unfairly denying, delaying, or underpaying valid claims. That’s why strong laws with stiff penalties – like those that have been codified in the Insurance Code for decades – are necessary to deter bad conduct.
However, Senate Bill 1628 gives to industry and takes from policyholders.
The bill rolls back decades of important policyholder protections. It incentivizes low-ball settlements, effectively immunizes insurance adjusters, agents, and employees, severely restricts when claims must be made, and creates “gotcha” provisions that allow insurers to delay payments on valid insurance claims.
Without meaningful legal protections, Texas families and businesses are left defenseless.
Please sign our petition to get Texas lawmakers to protect their constituents against unfair claims handling by voting against Senate Bill 1628.
