Hail damage? Best way to deal with it?

Mother nature is kicking my Camaro's ass lately....

I went through some serious hail storm driving through Colorado Springs yesterday... thankfully...no dents (none that I can see)... but, when I got home I almost had a heartattack when I noticed some paint chips on the front fender... ACK!!!!

Do I report it to my insurance and have it repainted or use touch up paint??
