Is Your Company On An Imaginary Insurance Auto Glass Windshield RED LIST
So does this imaginary Insurance Auto Glass Windshield Red List really exist? As we have commented before, we do not know for sure, but common sense, current activities from state Department of Insurances and insurance company Special Investigative Units (SIUs – maybe there will be a move series someday), News Investigations, and feedback we receive, we would conclude YES!
You’re visiting this website for one of many reason’s, you’re committing fraud and are looking for the latest information, you’re looking to report auto glass windshield fraud, you work for an insurance company or Department of Insurance, or you are just bored, so let’s take a deeper look into this imaginary list.
Many insurance companies are now implementing mandatory or random auto glass windshield replacement, chip repair, and crack repair inspections when one of their clients or a glass shop calls in third-party glass claim as part of the insurance claims process.
The consumer is the really the one that suffers most! They now have to deal with an extra step and inconvenience of a delay in the repair process!
During our investigation, several glass shop owners made the comment that seems to make sense.
“We are small business owners, and we have the right to spend our marketing budget any way we want as long as it is legal, and we are just following insurance company processes. It is the insurance company’s responsibility to police auto glass windshield replacement, chip repair, and crack repair fraud! “
We have to believe the Insurance Companies heard them loud and clear and are now implementing mandatory and random windshield inspections by before authorizing repairs.
