I have mold growing on the walls in my bathroom and the drywall needs to be replaced?

You'd have to check with your insurance agency to be sure. But most home owners insurance policies won't cover typical mold growth that comes from condensation in the house.

If it were from say a leaky roof then it might cover the mold growth. But they don't typically cover mold growth from the moisture in your bathroom.
