Review the Programs and Services options below to learn about the benefits MADA provides, adding value to your membership.
MADA’s Workers’ Compensation Fund is a group of dealers formed for the specific purpose of providing statutory Workers’ Compensation. MADA’s Fund is designed to benefit the participating members by controlling costs, limiting accidents through safety and loss control, aggressive claims management, providing stable rates and/or surplus distributions. Additionally, MADA provides a way for members to gain control over the injuries and claim costs, while providing a substantial pool of resources to share in the cost of claims and related expenses.
MADA’s Workers’ Compensation Fund was established November 1, 1982. MADA’s program is one of the very few original, operational Missouri self-insured workers’ compensation funds. All excess profit is returned to the participating members in the form of reduced rates, safety credits or surplus distributions.
A volunteer Board of Trustees (dealers) directs the operations of the Fund. The Fund has active Safety, Underwriting, Financial and Claim Committees that oversees the specific areas of the Fund’s operations and report to the Workers’ Compensation Board of Trustees at regular meetings.
The Fund has returned over $6m in surplus distributions and $3.4m in safety related performance based premium credits and is in a very strong financial position with a surplus ratio over 1:1.

Please contact Juanita Graham, Carla Armstrong, Pam Spencer or Jennifer Merlo at MADA's Title Service, 573-761-1010.

We offer two plans under the MADA Dental Program. The MADA Dental Program is designed for and offered exclusively to MADA members. It is self-funded through MADA. This program may be offered to your employees as a voluntary employee paid benefit or as a full or partially employer paid benefit. This plan covers all ADA treatment codes, including orthodontia for children or adults, and does not require the use of “network” providers.
