Accident Insurance Policy Information
Accident Insurance Policy
The school district has available student accident insurance for your child as a member of the district. The coverage provides payment for medical expenses incurred as a result of an accidental injury while attending school; traveling to and from school or participating in school sponsored activities.
Student accident insurance coverage is “excess” coverage. This means that your family’s health insurance is primary and you must submit all claims to your primary carrier for payment prior to submitting to the school’s carrier. It also means that you MUST FOLLOW THE RULES OF YOUR PRIMARY CARRIER. The school’s insurance plan is not an alternative to your regular health insurance. The intent of a student accident policy is to cover any out of pocket expenses such as co-payments and deductibles. If your family does not have health insurance, the school’s policy will act as primary.
