    TRISTAR Insurance Group began as an insurance program manager and medical malpractice claims administrator in 1987. Workers compensation claims management services were added in our offerings in 1989, and the Company was renamed TRISTAR Risk Management in 1995. As managed care and benefits administration services were added to our offerings, the organization grew into TRISTAR Insurance Group.

    Since our merger with Risk Enterprise Management in 2012, we became the largest privately held third party claims administrator. We empower more than 1,000+ professionals in offices throughout the United States, focusing business operations in three divisions: property casualty claims management, benefits administration, and managed care services.
