So who says insurance companies have to know enough about money to their bank accounts?
On January 17, the Louisiana Citizens Property Insurance Corp, the state-run property insurance program, was granted a huge rate increase by the LA Insurance Rating Commission.
Present at the meeting were LIRC members Barry Busada, Joe Godchaux, Jr., Jabari Ragas, Steven Ruiz, and Deputy Commissioner Chad Brown who represented Commissioner James Donelon.
It should be noted that Mr. Brown is also the chairman of Citizens' board.
The researcher questioned on what basis the LIRC granted the massive increase in rates while at the same time Citizens could not access its financial records to determine if it was making money or losing money and had not even balanced its bank accounts.
How can an actuary calculate loss ratios and the need for rate increases when the correct income and expense information isnt even available?
Makes one wonder how all the private insurance companies' rates are calculated.

Emily Charles, 21, had begun to drive herself and five longtime friends from a Luling hotel to Southern California on Feb. 18 when she rear-ended a vehicle and lost control of her SUV at the intersection of Louisiana highways 3127 and 3142 near Dow Chemical Co. in Killona. Charles hit the brakes, but could not avoid clipping the back of the car.
“After that, I don’t even know what happened. We must have flipped,” Charles said.
