Many parents without insurance coverage worry about protecting their children in the event of an illness or injury. Optional student accident insurance is an inexpensive way to provide medical coverage in such events. Student accident insurance is not just for those without health insurance. Optional student accident insurance can be a secondary level of coverage for those students who are covered under a parent or guardian’s primary insurance plan. In such cases, the optional student accident insurance may cover expenses not paid for by the primary insurance plan such as co-pays and other out-of-pocket expenses.
Affordable student accident insurance is available for purchase through a group rate. Parents may enroll students through the Internet or by calling the numbers identified below. Enrolling via the Internet will be accomplished by the use of a dedicated secure enrollment site for each of the insurance providers.
