Accident Insurance

What every parent should know about accident insurance  

Accidents happen

Did you know that Surrey Schools does not insure expenses for student injuries that happen on school grounds or during school activities? You are responsible for these expenses as a parent or guardian.

Medical Services Plan (MSP) either limits or does not cover some charges and group health plans often have deductibles. Injury-related costs not covered by MSP or group insurance plans may include:

  • Dental treatment
  • Eyewear
  • Rental of crutches or wheelchairs
  • Splints and casts
  • Physiotherapy
  • Private tutors

Whether playing sports, using playground equipment, having fun in the gym or schoolyard, students sometimes injure themselves while at school


Accident insurance is available

Parents who would like to purchase accident insurance for their child are advised to choose an insurance provider. Several companies offer accident insurance and you must decide which plan suits your family’s individual needs the best.

Surrey Schools and your District Parent Advisory Council provides the opportunity for families to voluntarily purchase private accident insurance through the Kids Plus accident program, underwritten by Industrial Alliance Insurance Company.

Kids Plus accident insurance offers protection against the unexpected costs of injury from accidents, and is especially valuable for families who:

  • do not have medical or dental plans
  • have limited plans, as it may help supplement health and dental benefits, or
  • have active children who enjoy sports and outdoor activities
