Who is MPR?

Since 1983, MPR (formerly known as MARCIT) has been a growing family of public entities in Missouri and Kansas who have found that the concept of public pooling is the answer to “best service, best price.” MPR represents the interests of 180+ public entities that rely on the organization to be a trusted advisor, an advocate, and a resource for their risk management and health benefits needs. Because of a unique blend of services specifically tailored to meet the needs of local governments, MPR has a proven track record of success.

As a Member-driven organization, MPR Member Representatives participate in collective ownership by directing pool services and encouraging staff to solve Member needs. This is MPR’s greatest success.

MPR offers three distinct lines of coverage to its Members: Health Benefits, Property & Liability, and Workers’ Compensation (Missouri only). MPR is not an insurance company, rather the self-funded administrator of the pool’s coverage programs.

MPR Members & Owners include:
  • Cities
  • Counties
  • School Districts
  • Special Districts
  • Health Departments
  • Fire Protection Districts
  • Ambulance Districts
  • Election Boards
  • Housing Authorities
MPR is regulated by both the state of Kansas and the state of Missouri; audits of the program are done on a continual basis for financial integrity.
