Students participating in interscholastic sports are automatically covered under the school’s athletic insurance program. The athletic insurance program does not cover any medical expense that is paid or payable under any other insurance policy. Therefore, a family’s regular insurance policy (Blue Cross/Blue Shield, etc.) will cover the student athlete initially. The school’s athletic insurance will take effect when the individual’s insurance is exhausted, up to the limits contained in the school’s athletic insurance policy, which is on file in the Business Office. PLEASE TAKE NOTICE THAT, IF YOU HAVE QUESTIONS ABOUT COVERAGE OR PARTICULAR TREATMENT UNDER THE SCHOOL’S ATHLETIC INSURANCE POLICY, YOU SHOULD INQUIRE ABOUT SUCH COVERAGE BEFORE YOU REQUEST OR AUTHORIZE SUCH TREATMENT. Athletes who are injured may obtain a claim form from the Athletic Director who will review the original accident report and sign the claim form.
CLAIMS MUST BE ON FILE WITH THE INSURANCE COMPANY WITHIN 90 DAYS OF THE INJURY.
