QBE North America is partnering with Morris Plains, New Jersey-based High Point Underwriters L.L.C. and Louisville, Kentucky-based Midwestern Insurance Alliance L.L.C. to deliver a national workers compensation and occupational accident insurance program for the transportation market, according to a joint company announcement Monday.

The insurer, a New York-based operating division of global insurer QBE Insurance Group Ltd., will offer coverage to employee drivers on a workers compensation policy and the owner-operators on an occupational accident and contingent liability policy with the same insurance company. This program will offer coverage nationally on an admitted and nonadmitted basis, according to a press announcement.

“Coverages and limits are customized and tailored based on the customer’s operations and QBE’s underwriting appetite,” a QBE North America spokeswoman said in an email.

"QBE's partnership with High Point and Midwestern is part of our strategy to work with established and experienced industry leaders in the management of workers' compensation and occupational accident programs," Glenn Skrynecki, senior vice president of property/casualty programs for QBE, said in a statement.
