Could the roof be damaged from hail storm?

My area had a hail storm with hail about the size of nickels (going by local weather caster). I wasn't home and this is what my neighbor related to me. My question is I have a 30 year asphalt shingle roof that was put on in 2002. Could my roof be damaged from the hail, and should I contact my insurance company to inspect? Thanks
