Our Organization

Metis was created to provide us with a space to innovate and grow beyond the boundaries of the self-insurance risk pools that we operate, but our pools remain at the core of what we do. Across all entities under the Metis umbrella, we share the same dedication to serving people and communities, keeping things human and simple wherever possible, and offering the most innovative and comprehensive coverages and services we possibly can.

Self-Insurance Risk Pools

We administer several group self-insurance risk pools which function very similarly to commercial insurance carriers. We write coverages, handle claims, and provide risk management services to our customers. However, our pools carry a few key advantages over traditional insurance.

Our risk pools were established as alternatives to commercial products. The coverages we carry are more comprehensive and tailored to our customers’ needs than what can be found on the commercial market.

These risk pools are wholly owned by the customers or member entities and are represented by supervisory boards elected from within the membership. This structure means there are no shareholders or outside investors to answer to.


VAcorp is the largest group self-insurance risk pool for public sector entities in the Commonwealth of Virginia. With over 500 members including counties, cities, towns, school divisions, regional jails, and local governmental authorities, VAcorp provides more coverage to Virginia public entities than any other provider.


WVcorp is the only group self-insurance risk pool for public sector entities in the state of West Virginia, with 300 county, municipal, and local government authority members.

Commonwealth Contractors

Owned and operated by its Virginia contractor members since 1981, Commonwealth Contractors provides the Virginia construction industry with a unique way to manage their workers’ compensation costs. By combining with other like-minded companies who focus on preventative safety, monies are invested until needed to pay claims and other expenses, and the surplus is returned to the membership in the form of dividends.
