Ambulance board approves workers’ comp, equipment purchases

Thanks in part to a series of years with few or no claims and equipment upgrades resulting in fewer employee injuries, the Callaway County Ambulance District will see a distinct drop in the cost of its workers’ compensation insurance policy.

The district’s Board of Directors voted Tuesday night to approve a $90,860 policy quote from Missouri Employers Mutual, which provides the current policy at a cost of $119,539.

Tim Powers with Missouri General Insurance Agency attributed the savings of more than $28,500 to several years of having few or zero claims.

“You have had a very good claims year,” Powers said. “We’ve been selling this along with the (purchase of) mechanical lifts and Charlie’s (CCAD Director Charles Anderson) cooperation with MEM to develop a safety training program.”

The district also received a quote for $90,768 from Missouri Rural Services Trust. Explaining that Missouri Rural is a trust whereas MEM is a standard provider, David Powers, also with Missouri General Insurance Agency, told the board why his agency recommended the slightly higher quote from Missouri Employers Mutual.
