Yes, it's possible. In Missouri, most of the leading home insurance carriers offer sinkhole coverage included in their basic home-insurance policy.



If not, you can consider getting a separate policy to provide you with the protection you need. This would cost you some extra money at the end of each month, but you never know when a deadly sinkhole is going to eat up your dream home.



Below are some resources to know sinkholes in Missouri in a better way.

Hope this helps!!

Not in Missouri Mango. A bill was proposed to take effect 1-1-2014 that would require insurers to offer sinkhole coverage for an additional premium. It has not yet made it out of the state legislature. Probably a lot of insurance company money pushing for that legislation to die.
