Appointed by Governor John Hickenlooper, Michael Conway serves as Colorado’s Insurance Commissioner where he is tasked with regulating and monitoring insurance companies and insurance agents in Colorado. With the mission of Consumer Protection, Michael Conway and the Colorado Division of Insurance have streamlined a simple process for insurance consumers to file complaints against insurance companies that are mistreating, slow paying, or not paying their insurance claims.
The new system gives consumers the ability to state their complaints as well as allowing them to upload supporting documents, including policies, letters or other communications from insurance companies or agents. To make the process faster, consumers are notified by email anytime there is activity on the complaint that requires a consumer’s attention. People will be able to communicate directly and securely with the Division through the portal about their complaints.
The Consumer Complaint Portal can be accessed through the Consumer – Ask A Question page of the Colorado Division of Insurance website. The Consumer Complaint Portal will require insurance consumers to create an account with an email address. After logging into the Consumer Complaint Portal, an insurance consumer has the ability to submit a complaint and upload supporting documents, including insurance policies and communications from insurance companies or agents. Insurance consumers are notified by email anytime there is activity on the consumer complaint that requires an insurance consumer’s attention.
Insurance consumers can also download and print a Consumer Complaint Form that can be mailed to the Division of Insurance at the below address:
