Insurance Commissioner Mike Chaney

Mississippi Insurance Commissioner Mike Chaney talked with Y’all Politics this morning on a Facebook Live interview.

Chaney said one Insurance Department employee had recovered from coronavirus and no others have been diagnosed with the virus.

The Insurance Commissioner said drivers’ insurance rates have seen reductions during the pandemic as driving has reduced.  He also outlined the effects on business interruption insurance and what may be coming down from the federal government.

Chaney’s office is also assisting MEMA in responding to the recent severe weather events, setting up mobile offices to help residents.
