How will Hurricane Ian impact home insurance costs in Florida? Insurance rates have already been going up in past years in Florida, even as six companies went insolvent and another 27 are on a state financial watch list. "We anticipate rates will go up significantly next year," Mark Friedlander of the Insurance Information Institute said. "We're not making a prediction at this point, but based on the trend we have seen over the past several years where rates have gone up double-digit, we will see continued double-digit increases if not higher going forward." Florida's insurance industry has been plagued by litigation issues and rising reinsurance costs, which have led to many large carriers limiting policies and leaving many smaller companies financially exposed.
Citizens Insurance, the insurer of last resort, is now the dominant insurer in Florida with more than a million policies and growing. Insurance experts said Hurricane Ian will likely drive up costs — not just by the large claims — but also the rising costs for re-insurance, basically insurance for the insurance companies. residents should expect a 30-40% rate increase next year.
