About CAMICO

We know CPAs,
because we are CPAs

CAMICO challenges the traditional insurance company approach to protecting CPAs

CAMICO proactively protects you with products and services designed specifically for CPAs. We take better care of accountants with specialized expertise and a dedicated focus on practice and risk management. We understand CPAs because we are CPAs.

It all started with an innovative approach

In the early 1980s, CPAs were faced with a liability insurance crisis. Major insurance carriers found themselves with insufficient funds to cover claims and many withdrew from the market. This left their policyholders without insurance. Those who retained their coverage were often met with prohibitive premium increases that made coverage impossible to afford. 

Seeing a need for change, the California Society of CPAs convened a task force to brainstorm solutions. They ultimately recommended the creation of a company that would operate solely for the benefit of its CPA members. Enter CAMICO, which on June 24, 1986, opened its doors for business with just two full-time employees reporting to the President. Within a month, 1,250 CPA policyholders had joined.

More than an insurance company

An essential part of CAMICO’s proactive approach is to encourage you, our policyholders, to call regarding any problems, concerns, questions or potential claims. Most people aren’t used to being encouraged to call their insurance company with problems. But at CAMICO, we want to be more than your insurance company. We forge unique partnerships with our CPAs – it’s one of the reasons many of our policyholders have been a member for 36+ years.

We work closely with you and your firm to anticipate your evolving needs and navigate the unique challenges of the profession, regardless of the economic climate. This has been our mission since we opened our doors in 1986 and is the hallmark of how we operate today. Being there for CPAs is in our “DNA.”
