Specialty insurer Hiscox USA has launched a new workers compensation insurance program for small businesses in California.

The policy covers medical benefits and wages should an employee suffer an injury or illness as a result of their work and provides access to medical providers who can assist with their recovery.

The new workers comp policy is underwritten by Hiscox Insurance Company Inc. and is offered along with Hiscox’s professional liability, general liability and business owners policies.

“With Hiscox’s workers compensation coverage, small business owners can rest assured that their employees will get the care they need in the unfortunate event of an injury,” said Kevin Kerridge, EVP of Small Business Insurance at Hiscox USA. “We look forward to launching this new offering in additional regions.”
