The Missouri Self-Insurers Association (MSIA) is a statewide not-for-profit trade organization representing employers and trusts who self-insure their workers’ compensation or have a deductible of $250,000 or more.  The Association is the only statewide trade organization dedicated specifically to workers’ compensation issues as they relate to self-insured employers and trusts.

Since its inception, MSIA has served as a voice for workers’ compensation reform in the Missouri General Assembly and before the Division of Workers’ Compensation on regulatory matters.  A great deal of effort by the Board of Directors is spent reviewing proposed regulations and legislation which could help or detrimentally impact workers’ compensation in the State of Missouri.  In addition to the regulatory and legislative affairs of the Association, quarterly meetings are scheduled in St. Louis and Kansas City to provide the membership with an opportunity to attend educational opportunities.  The Education Committee strives to present cutting edge issues, as well as, programs which are targeted at helping achieve additional savings for your workers’ compensation programs.

 The Annual Convention is a one and one-half day event providing attendees the opportunity to hear recognized speakers on crucial workers’ compensation topics.  In addition to the educational programming, there is adequate time to network with your colleagues for new and different approaches in the workers’ compensation arena, as well as, the opportunity to meet with Associate members who provide you with services or products.

We hope that you will consider joining the Association.  With the substantial changes taking place in the Missouri General Assembly over the next few years, it is imperative that companies who self-insure their workers’ compensation maintain a unified voice.
