November 03, 2022

Midwest Builders’ Casualty Group was recognized for its outstanding five-year growth in expanding to 31 states and increasing submission activity, policyholder count, and premium size

HARTFORD, Conn. -- Insurity, a leading provider of cloud-based software for insurance carriers, brokers, and MGAs, today announced that Midwest Builders’ Casualty Group is the recipient of the “Excellence in Premium Growth for a Monoline Carrier” award at Excellence in Insurance Innovation. The Excellence in Insurance Innovation awards ceremony took place in Las Vegas and recognized the outstanding performances of P&C organizations in categories including exceptional policyholder service, digital transformation, and excellence in data and analytics.

Midwest Builders’ Casualty is a regional mutual insurance company specializing in workers’ compensation insurance for the construction and manufacturing industries. Due to a common anniversary date required by its previous 20-plus year-old system, as well as state limitation, Midwest Builders’ Casualty was unable to capture the market growth it wanted. Midwest partnered with Insurity in 2016 to modernize its system and start capturing those missed opportunities.

Midwest Builders’ Casualty went live on Insurity’s Workers’ Comp Suite in July 2017. The portal options, self-reporting features, and easy configurability allowed Midwest Builders’ staff, policyholders, and agents to seamlessly adapt to the new system. The ease of use of the Insurity platform enabled Midwest Builders’ Casualty to expand from 14 states to 31 states in less than three years.

“Throughout this transformation, none of our servicing standards have changed,” said Beth Long, Chief Operating Officer at Midwest Builders’ Casualty Group. “We have maintained a 98% retention rate annually for policyholders since our move to the Insurity platform, which not only speaks highly of the service our staff offers, but also shows finding the right technology partner can really enable you to grow seamlessly.”

“The ability to scale and profitably grow is not just a sign of innovation but a marker for our industry's success,” said Sylvester Mathis, Chief Insurance Officer at Insurity. “Midwest Builders’ Casualty has seen impressive growth in the monoline workers' comp space over the past several years and continues to forge ahead with building efficiencies in their premium audit process.”
