How To Get An Insurance License in Missouri
The first step to launching your business as an independent producer is obtaining your insurance license.
If you live in Missouri, you will need to apply for a Resident Producer's License with the Missouri Department of Insurance (MID).
To sell Medicare plans with ABC Medicare Plans, you will need to obtain an Accident & Health license. The Life Insurance license is not required, but many agents complete their requirements since most of the pre-licensing study courses cover that material.
You also may need a Life License to enroll your clients in additional coverage beyond Medicare plans.
The first step to getting licensed is to sign up for a study course that will help you prepare for the exam.
We recommend using WebCE, an online study course.

5) MID will review your application
Submitting an application does not mean that a license was approved or issued. You will be notified (by the contact email address entered on the application) when the application is approved or if the MID needs additional information. You may check the status of a license online using the Licensee Lookup tool.
Please allow 5 business days for MID to review your application.
