Omaha National Group Inc., offers AM Best A- (Excellent) rated workers’ compensation coverage through more than 2,500 agencies. Since its marketing launch in 2017, the company has grown to more than 250 employees and is approaching $200 million of in-force premium.

Omaha National announced that it has acquired Sutter Insurance Company, a California domiciled insurance carrier that has been renamed Omaha National Casualty Company. Omaha National also owns Omaha National Insurance Company, which is domiciled in Nebraska.

“The acquisition of a carrier licensed in California, which is our largest market, is a major step forward in operating as a national full-stack carrier,” CEO Reagan Pufall said.

“Since inception, our plan has been to combine strong growth with exceptional underwriting results and that’s what we’ve achieved. We’re approaching $200 million in-force premium while at the same time our loss ratio, including allocated loss adjustment expenses, has been below 60% every year we’ve been in operation.”

We are now licensed to issue policies in 37 states and continue to expand toward nationwide coverage,” Omaha National General Counsel Jim Hempel said. “We enjoy excellent relationships with our fronting partners but writing on our own paper immediately enhances our underwriting results and allows us to better serve our policyholders and broker partners.”

In another milestone, Omaha National is now implementing Oncore Underwriting, the company’s proprietary underwriting and policy management application.

“One of our core strategic principles is that we design and develop our own operational software entirely in-house,” said Bryan Connolly, Omaha National’s Chief Operating Officer.

When we implemented Oncore Claims in 2021 it generated remarkable improvements in our claims results, and we expect Oncore Underwriting to have a similarly profound impact. When Oncore CRM is implemented in 2025 all key functions within the company will be performed within a single proprietary application.”
