State Insurance Commissioner Mike Kreidler has fined four insurance companies a total of $100,000 for overcharging thousands of Washington consumers.
The companies are Hartford Accident and Indemnity Co., Hartford Casualty Insurance Co., Hartford Insurance Co. of the Midwest and Trumbull Insurance Co. They have agreed to pay the fine, according to a release from Kreidler’s office on Tuesday.
The companies also agreed to refund more than $1 million in overcharges to consumers, including 8 percent interest, Kreidler said. The overcharges affected nearly 4,800 auto policies between 2009 and 2013. The affected consumers were notified by the companies and refunds sent out in April.email@example.com
