To get an accurate claim history on consumers, many insurance companies use a service called HITS (Habitational Insurance Tracking System). HITS is a centralized database that provides a seven year history of auto and homeowner insurance claims. The database enables homeowner and auto insurance companies to exchange your claim history. The HITS database is maintained by CGI Insurance Information Services.
Information provided on the reports include the date of the loss, the type of loss, the name of the insurance company, policy number, the amount paid, and other general information. As with any report that is collected by a consumer reporting agency, you have the right to obtain a free copy annually. Information on how to obtain your HITS report can be found on the HITS website.
Your insurance premiums are determined by the information provided on these reports, therefore, it is recommended to check them periodically. In the event you find a discrepancy on your report, you have the right by law to dispute it. Checking your HITS report prior to shopping for or insurance coverage will give you the time needed to fix any discrepancies before purchasing a policy.
