Show Me State Just Says No To Paper

The Missouri Insurance Market Regulation Division plans to digitize all insurance filings that come in on paper.

Missouri officials will stop retaining the paper versions of forms Aug. 1, officials say.

Today, insurers submit about 68% of their filings through the System for Electronic Rate and Form Filing, Kansas City, Mo., Missouri officials say.

Missouri is trying to get insurers to file more of their forms through SERFF by offering faster processing times.

Insurers that insist on submitting forms on paper should comply with rules designed to make forms easy to feed into SERFF, officials say.

More information about the new Missouri filing rules and incentives is on the Web .
