Due to the severe storms and tornado that took place in Illinois on April 9, 2015, the counties of DeKalb and Ogle have been declared as disaster areas. As a result, if you reside in DeKalb or Ogle counties or were affected by the storms, for the period April 9, 2015 to June 9, 2015, or a later time if deemed reasonable given your individual circumstances, Fortress will ensure that polices are not cancelled or non-renewed and that extensions are provided for policyholder’s to comply with policy provisions.


In the event an impacted policyholder has a disaster-related dispute or issue they feel is unresolved they may contact the Illinois Department of Insurance online or call (866)445-5364.



The Fortress Risk Management Committee supports the new guidelines outlined by the ADA in the January 2015 JADA article, “The Use of Prophylactic Antibiotics Prior to Dental Procedures in Patients with Prosthetic Joints”. Our recommendation is to thoroughly evaluate each patient prior to prescribing prophylactic antibiotics. Consider consultation with the orthopedic surgeon for guidance if absolutely necessary.
