Open Marketplace

There are about 300 insurance companies licensed to write worker's compensation insurance in Wisconsin. Information on the direct premiums written and market share for insurance companies writing worker's compensation insurance is available on our Web site at http://oci.wi.gov/markshar/markshar.htm. The state of Wisconsin does not write or provide worker's compensation insurance coverage. Contact a local agent to assist you in applying for insurance to the company of your choice.

If an insurance company turns down your application for insurance, you should ask your agent to search the marketplace for another company. If coverage is not available in the private market, your agent should submit an application to the Wisconsin Workers Compensation Insurance Pool.
