In its final week of the session, which concluded last Friday, the Missouri General Assembly passed several insurance-related bills, including bills that allow consumers to use electronic devices to show evidence of insurance as well as permitting property/casualty insurers to post a consumer’s policy online and send a link via e-mail to the policyholder in lieu of providing a hard copy.

The Assembly also passed SB 1, which limits the types of claims that can be run through the Second Injury Fund and the amount that can be recovered, and HB 339 (“No Pay, No Play” legislation), which prohibits recovery of non-economic damages by those who have been injured in an automobile accident but whom themselves do not have auto insurance, according to the Property Casualty Insurers Association of America (PCI).
