12. I received a letter from CalOES/FEMA saying the government would not collect debris removal insurance funds used to address unresolved debris removal issues. Does that mean I won’t get a bill for the Government Debris Removal Program?

Your insurance company will receive an invoice for CalOES/FEMA’s debris removal costs, with a copy to you. If you received such a letter from CalOES/FEMA and incurred expenses to resolve debris removal issue(s), you my be reimbursed by your insurance company or the County out of your debris removal insurance proceeds. If there are unused debris removal insurance funds after you are reimbursed, the County will collect that money to pass on to CalOES/FEMA. If there are no debris removal insurance funds remaining after you are reimbursed, you will owe nothing to CalOES/FEMA.
