About Care West Insurance Company

Formed in 1989, Care West Insurance Company became an admitted California insurance carrier licensed to write Workers Compensation in 1996.

Today, Care West has grown to provide workers’ compensation insurance to safety-minded employers throughout California by working closely with a select group of independent brokers who understand the workers’ compensation needs of California employers. We insure a broad range of employers across multiple industries, including healthcare, farming, wine making, manufacturing, and human service providers.

Throughout its history, Care West has emphasized the value of proactive safety and loss control in the workplace and remains eager to help employers improve their workers’ compensation costs by reducing workplace injuries.
