6535 Student Insurance

The district may offer student insurance coverage. The superintendent or designee is authorized to receive quotations from insurance providers and select the best source or sources of coverage. Upon selection the district will distribute application forms. The district may supply claims information (time of accident, cause of accident) when requested by a student or his/her parent.
To be eligible for consideration, insurance providers must provide knowledgeable representatives to process claims, answer questions concerning coverage and procedures, and expediate communication among the claimant, doctor, or hospital and claims office. All insurance providers must be licensed to do business in the state of Washington.
No district funds shall be used for the payment of premiums, nor shall the district or any of its employees assume any responsibility whatsoever for the provisions of the student insurance policies.
