United Heartland Expands National Presence – Adds Work Comp Offerings in Pennsylvania, Maryland, Louisiana and the District of Columbia

New Berlin, Wis. – United Heartland, a leading national workers’ compensation insurance company, announced today that it will offer workers’ compensation insurance in Pennsylvania, Maryland, Louisiana and the District of Columbia effective immediately.

This announcement reflects the continued expansion of the company’s footprint throughout the U.S.  Most recently, United Heartland expanded into Connecticut, Oklahoma and South Dakota.

“Our entry into these new markets strengthens our national presence in the workers’ compensation market,” said Steve Cooper, president of United Heartland.  “Our approach has been particularly successful within our six key business segments – education, health care, long-term care, manufacturing, nonprofits/social services and wholesale/retail.”

Under the direction of Justin Bealhen, vice president of Field Operations, the United Heartland team will explore opportunities for appointing agents and identifying qualified customers within the new areas.

“Our high-touch service model allows us to be nimble and responsive to customer needs, and we look forward to working with agency partners who share that philosophy,” said Bealhen.  “We are confident our value proposition and tireless commitment to controlling our customer’s total cost of risk will be attractive to potential customers in the regions we serve.”
