History

NORCAL_40-Years_thumbexpand.pngFrom planting our roots in Northern California in 1975, we expanded across the state and into Alaska in 1991. In 1994 we began writing in Rhode Island, and continued into Pennsylvania in 1998 and Delaware in 2007. Our growth accelerated in 2011 with the addition of 22 new states with the acquisition of Medicus Insurance Company. Our national growth has brought together more than 32,000 insureds with diverse locations and specialties. At year-end 2017, NORCAL was admitted in a total of 49 states and the District of Columbia.
