Blanket Middle School Athletic Insurance Program for the 2023-24 School Year
The School District provides for an "Excess Blanket Athletic Insurance Policy" that will provide accidental medical coverage for students injured while participating in District sanctioned extracurricular athletic activities. The District requires that all students trying out for or competing in school district sponsored athletics remain covered by a medical insurance policy at all times. The district pays the entire premium for this "Blanket Policy" that provides uniform coverage for all athletes without risk of cancellation due to loss or ineligibility for continued coverage. This policy can provide valuable insurance coverage for parents that either do not have insurance or those parents that have existing coverage under their under either a "private" (UHC, Blue Cross, Humana, Aetna, etc...) or "public" (Tricare, Medicaid, Champus, etc...) medical insurance plan. For parents who have existing insurance this "Excess Plan" will pay for many out-of-pocket expenditures (copays, deductibles, coinsurance, etc...).
This policy is secondary coverage for students who are already covered by a "private" family policy but shall be primary coverage for the students who have no other insurance coverage or are covered by a "public" family policy. Athletes are covered by this Excess Blanket Policy while participating in extracurricular athletics under school sponsorship and supervision; and while being transported by approved district transportation.
A description of the plan (schedule of values) including policy exclusions and limitations can be found here or from your coach.
The school district shall not be responsible for cost of treating injuries or assume liability for any other costs associated with an injury while participating in extracurricular athletic activities including, but not limited to, out-of-pocket medical expenses.
