AIG Insurance Claim Coverage Information

Beginning on July 28, 2015, Richland School District Two will provide insurance coverage through AIG for:

1. athletes injured while participating in interscholastic sports.

2. students injured on a Richland Two school campus or off campus while participating in a school-sanctioned and school-supervised activity.
The insurance, which helps cover the cost of medical care by a physician or healthcare facility, is in excess of the student’s primary coverage. The coverage provided is at 70 percent coinsurance with limits on physical therapy, ambulance and dental. The district’s supplemental coverage becomes the primary coverage if a student or athlete is uninsured. The district does not select medical doctors or medical facilities and has no control over the amount of money they charge for services. The parents of the student athlete must obtain a injury claim form to have access to these potential benefits, please note all claims must be filed within 90 days of injury. Below are the procedures to obtain an injury claim form for athletic related injuries.
