FCCI Date Approaches
On January 1, 2000 CHAPP transfers its entire worker’s compensation book of business to FCCI Insurance Group. After all of our research, we feel we are placing your coverage with the best insurance company in Florida. FCCI is the largest worker’s compensation insurance carrier based in Florida. FCCI’s financial strength and customer friendly philosophies make FCCI a perfect match for our clients. We should see several benefits from FCCI including the potential for higher dividends to our clients. One of the best things about our new partnership with FCCI is that there will be no change in the way CHAPP and our customers do business. CHAPP has been given full authority to underwrite business, collect premium and perform loss control and claims services like we have always done. There will also be no change in the way your claims are handled by FCCI as they have contracted with the key people that handled your claims in the past.
Most of our customers have already signed the FCCI application that is required to move their coverage to FCCI effective January 1, 2000. If you have not signed your application yet, please contact our office as soon as possible to make arrangements.
Don’t Let Our Competitors Fool You
We have heard that our competitors (other agencies, employee leasing companies) and other insurance companies are using our move to FCCI to try to get a share of our business. Unfortunately they are using misinformation and rumors to try to influence some of our clients. If you hear anything about CHAPP that does not come from our office, please let us know. So you are not misled by some of the things you hear or are promised by others, let us review the facts and figures with you before you sign anything!
