Citizens developed the Property Insurance Clearinghouse renewals program to help our policyholders find private-market policy options that may provide comparable or better coverage with premiums equal to or less than those offered by Citizens. All private-market companies participating in the clearinghouse must be authorized to do business in Florida by the Florida Office of Insurance Regulation.
The following Citizens renewal policy types are entered into the clearinghouse prior to renewal:
- Multiperil and wind-only homeowners (HO-3 and HW-2)
- Multiperil and wind-only condominium-unit owners (HO-6 and HW-6)
- Dwelling Property 1 and 3 (DP-1 and DP-3).
- Excludes DP-1 and DP-3 tenant contents and condominium-unit policies.
Additional policy types will be added over time.
