An important best practice to consider is to require student athletes to have primary insurance, but institutions have encountered difficulty in finding primary insurance that will cover athletic injuries. To this end, Mutual of Omaha offers a primary accident-only insurance plan for athletic-related injuries to assist institutions that require student athletes to have other insurance to control costs.
NAIA institutions purchasing the excess basic medical insurance coverage through Mutual of Omaha are eligible to purchase this coverage.
The Blanket Primary Accident Program provides coverage while students are participating in covered athletic events only.
- Accident Medical Expense Maximum: $5,000
- Deductible: $0 per injury
- Benefit Period: 104 weeks
Should a participating student-athlete have other coverage, payment of benefits will be coordinated accordingly.
