About Us

More than 40 years ago Lyceum Insurance Services was founded with a single goal: to maximize health while minimizing risk, for our employer clients as well as for their employees and dependents.
Since that time hundreds of clients have chosen to partner with our company, and new clients are added every year. We’re understandably proud of all of our client relationships – clients that have worked with us for months or years, and clients that we’ve been privileged to serve for decades.
