Student Accident Plan

Why do I need insurance for my child?

Are you aware that the expenses from most accidents exceed the benefits provided by your government and group insurance plans?

Even the most minor accident can result in major financial responsibilities and some expenses may not even be insured under your government and group insurance policies. The result: you, the parent/guardian, become financially responsible.

To help identify the advantages of a Student Accident Plan, take a moment to review the following scenarios to compare a typical group insurance plan with the Student Accident Plan. These stories are real incidents where a Student Accident Plan made a large impact on each family. They could have had severe financial strain; instead, these families were protected with a Student Accident Plan.

Plan Benefits

The Student Accident Plan is an inexpensive and comprehensive way to protect families from financial hardships they may face as a result of an accident. Each year, thousands of families are left unprotected when their child is injured at school or while participating in non-school activities. The Student Accident Plan provides financial protection for expenses not normally covered under government health or group insurance plans.

Peace of mind is affordable with a Student Accident Plan.

Here are just a few of the many benefits we provide for less than a dollar a week:
