Residents of California must note that Atlas America insurance Provider is not licensed by the State of California as the insurance provider is called “non admitted” or “surplus line”. This means that the insurance company does not participate in the insurance guarantee funds created by California Law and insured claims will not be paid by the funds if the insurance company is unable to pay as promised.

Tokio Marine HCC holds a financial strength rating of “A++” (Superior) by A.M. Best Company.
