Checking Bills on Claims

So many times we see that restoration contractors hired on insurance claims, overcharge for services or charge for equipment they never used.  Why does this matter to you?  Although most people really don’t care because the money isn’t directly coming out of their pocket, you should take interest because in the end it will cost you.  The total amount of the claim can affect an increase in your policy, and hence cost you more money.  So, if you have restoration contractors and other contractors all overcharging, no it doesn’t come out of your pocket now, but will later.  What should you do?  Ask all contractors hired for a copy of the invoice, even if they directly bill your insurance company.  This way, you can check the line items one by one to insure no overcharging or insurance fraud against your policy is being committed.
