Only days after directing insurance carriers not to consider Hurricane Sandy a hurricane for purposes of homeowners’ deductibles, New York Governor Andrew M. Cuomo has again immersed himself in the insurer-insured claims process. 

Gov. Cuomo has announced that, at his direction, New York Financial Services Superintendent Benjamin M.

Typically, insurance companies require an on-site inspection first before a claim can be processed.
