Student Accident Insurance

Expect the best when preparing for the worst.

School sports, special events and other activities are an important part of students’ lives, keeping them healthy, active and socially engaged. With Players Health’s Catastrophic Accident coverage, ensure your students and their families are financially prepared if a major incident occurs during a school-sponsored activity.

 

Even if families already have medical coverage, when serious accident or injury occurs, that coverage may not be enough. Catastrophic accident coverage helps make sure families are financially prepared if a major, life-threatening incident occurs during a school-sponsored activity. While deductibles can be higher than most health coverage, premiums are low, and the benefits can help relieve the heavy financial burden that accompanies treatment for unexpected, complicated injuries.

 

You choose the coverage that best suits your district’s needs and budget. Plans are custom designed for each school entity.

Will this policy provide coverage if a student is sick?

No. This is accidentonly coverage. Benefits are not payable for loss due to sickness. 

If a student has primary health insurance, what benefits will they receive from having this accident coverage?

This accident plan may cover various out-of-pocket expenses such as deductibles, denied benefits and co-insurance fees that a policyholder may be responsible for from a primary health insurance plan.

What if a student does not have health insurance?

 If a student does not have insurance, this plan provides the student with accident insurance coverage.

Where can I get a claim form?

Claim forms are available online. Scroll up to the toggle bar and select the Enroll today tab, or you can request one to be sent to you via email or fax by calling us at 1-800-932-0588.

Does the hospital/doctor file my claim, and do I leave the claim form with the provider?

The injured student’s parents are responsible for ensuring the claim form, detailed bills and explanations of benefits from other insurance carriers are sent into the claims department for processing in a timely manner. The fax number and address are on the front of the claim form.

What if I have other insurance?

Personal health insurance pays first, voluntary insurance (if purchased) pays second, and then the school’s blanket plan will pay.

How long do I have to seek treatment and submit a claim?

Each claimant must file the claim form and seek treatment from a licensed physician within 90 days of the date of the accident. The sooner the better on both treatment and claim filing.

Can I seek treatment from any physician I choose?

Yes. We recommend using a physician in your personal insurance network first, but you can see a multi-plan physician.

Who do I call to check the status of a claim?

You can call WebTPA at 877-563-7492 and select option 4 for claim status.

Is there a deductible with this policy?

No.

Does the school insurance cover everything?

The school accident insurance is a benefit provided by your school district and is meant to supplement personal health insurance. It has internal policy limits and was not intended to cover every injury or expense.

Why has my claim payment been delayed or denied?

If a claim has been delayed or denied, typically that means that there is required paperwork missing. There are three required items needed for all claims: 1. filed claim form, 2. primary health insurance explanation of benefits, and 3. treating provider statements with billing codes.
