What is Group Accident Insurance?
Many K-12 school districts across the country utilize group accident insurance policies. This type of insurance provides coverage in the case of an injury to students, chaperones, and other volunteers that help educators, teachers, and staff during school activities, sporting events, and other school related occasions.
Can K-12 Schools Benefit from Group Accident Insurance?
One important way schools benefit from group accident insurance is that it adds another layer of financial protection against liability expenses that can arise from injuries for which they can be held responsible. The expense and potential threat of legal action against a school is a real possibility. Group Accident Insurance helps protect schools against these types of issues.
Parents and students can also benefit from group accident insurance. This type of policy provides a financial benefit to families to cover any additional costs associated with a school-related injury. This is especially helpful for families that may not have major medical coverage, or would incur unexpected expenses as the result of an accident.
