Public Entities

IN 1979, WHA was one of the first nationally to develop a specialty Public Entities department. Today, we represent over 340 Public Entities throughout the Northwest. Our purpose is to provide unequaled 24-hour service, the highest quality insurance products, and Risk Management solutions specific to each Public Entity’s unique needs. Today we are licensed in 48 states, as well as licensed consultants, and we can act as your agent or your consultant. We work with major insurers and pool providers of Public Entity products. To assure fast quality service, WHA maintains one of the highest ratios of licensed staff-to-clients significantly above industry standard. To assure we understand your operations and can communicate in your language, we are active in many of your state, regional, and national associations. Some agents speak “insurance at their clients.” At WHA, our experience and involvement in your profession make us a valued working partner to your Public Entity.
