Beginning with the 2015-2016 school year, the Michigan High School Athletic Association is also providing eligible athletic participants at each MHSAA member junior high/middle school and high school with additional insurance that is intended to pay accident medical expense benefits resulting from a suspected concussion. The injury must be sustained while the athlete is participating in an MHSAA covered activity. Policy limit is $25,000 for each accident. Covered students, sports and situations are identical to the catastrophic accident medical insurance which, if the $25,000 threshold is reached, would require a separate claim to be made.
This new program intends to assure that all eligible student-athletes in MHSAA member schools in grades 7 through 12, male and female, in all levels of all sports under the jurisdiction of the MHSAA, receive prompt and professional attention for head injury events even if the child is uninsured or under-insured. Accident medical deductibles and co-pays left unpaid by other policies are reimbursed under this program to the limits of the policy.
Should you have need to make a claim under this new program, contact firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 800-237-2917 toll free.
