Missouri Workers Comp Rates

Missouri workers' compensation rates decrease in 2019.

Missouri workers comp rates are about 7% higher than the national median for workers comp rates. The state currently ranks 21st from the most expensive states. A similar study conducted in 2018 listed Missouri as 36th, but rates have continued to increase at a faster pace than many other states.

Some of the driving forces affecting an overall decrease in workers compensation rates include fewer number of claims in the state, claim severity, the cost of medical care, and the overall loss ration of the insurance industry with regard to workers compensation insurance.

Missouri is still an excellent state for purchasing workers compensation because their are a lot of insurance companies competing for market share. Carriers can issue policy credits up to 25% in the state creating a wide variance for the cost of a policy.
