Insurance has worked diligently to make its site easy to use and accessible to as many citizens and as many browsers as possible.


At the top of each page is a navigation bar with links to the Missouri State home page, the Insurance home page, and pages to help you search and navigate the Insurance site, along with a way to contact the department.

Along the left side of the page are links to help you navigate quickly to the main sections and most popular areas of the Insurance website. You can also subscribe to the Insurance e-mail newsletter, which notifies you when there are news releases, bulletins or new features on the website.

A "breadcrumb trail" is located at the top of each page to help you figure out where you are in the Insurance site. Clicking on any of the links in the breadcrumb trail will move you up one level in the site.


The Insurance site is written in Extensible HyperText Markup Language (XHTML) in strict compliance with W3C specifications, and uses Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) to add colors and positioning to the page. Consequently, this page renders best in current browsers, such as Firefox/Mozilla, Opera, Netscape and Safari, but should be readable in older browsers, such as Internet Explorer, Netscape 4.x and text-based browsers. Extra navigational aids are provided for these older browsers.


Insurance uses Adobe Acrobat files to provide some of our information, particularly forms and brochures. Whenever possible, an HTML version of the document is also provided. A link to the free Adobe Reader is provided on each page.

When any other plug-in is needed, we have tried to provide a link to that plug-in. For example, we'd set a link to Microsoft Word Viewer on a page that contains a Word document for download.

Site design:

The Insurance website is designed to validate to the XHTML 1.0-Strict standard and the Cascading Style Sheet Level 3 (CSS3) specification.
