CompWest Expands Appetite with Home Health Care Class Code

We’re very excited to announce that CompWest has added home health care class codes 8827 and 8835 to its approved appetite for retail agents in California and Utah, respectively.

The program targets home health care operations with a minimum annual premium of $10,000.

The expansion of CompWest’s existing health care segment provides our agents with a service-oriented, long-term workers’ compensation solution for the growing needs of the health care industry – and makes CompWest more competitive as a full-service carrier.

CompWest’s Top 10

As CompWest continues to expand its appetite to meet the changing needs of our agent partners, we want to keep you informed about our largest areas of written business.

We’ve created a list of our top 10 written class codes during the past three months in both our Southern and Northern California regions.  This will be updated and shared with you quarterly.  For the full list, click here.

If you have any questions, please contact your business development consultant.
