West Virginia Workers’ Compensation

Private Agencies

In January of 2006, West Virginia abolished their state managed workers’ compensation program and transferred all coverage to a private insurer known as BrickStreet Mutual Insurance Company. BrickStreet currently provides workers’ compensation coverage for all West Virginia employers. However, a recent development, other private insurers will be allowed to offer coverage to employers who wish to change providers. All businesses with more than three employees must invest in workers’ compensation coverage, with the exception of agriculture businesses.
