Optional Student Accident Insurance
Ensure you’re insured for student accidents this school year. Accidents happen, but not everything is covered by the Medical Services Plan (MSP).
The Surrey School District does not insure expenses for student injuries that happen on school grounds or during school activities, and MSP limits the amounts paid or does not cover some charges.
Parents have the option to purchase student accident insurance for injury-related costs not covered or limited under MSP or group insurance plans. These costs may include:
* Dental treatment
* Rental of crutches or wheelchairs
* Splints and casts
* Ambulance transportation
* Private tutoring and counselling
Optional student accident insurance is available through private companies and interested parents are encouraged to research which plan best suits their family’s needs.
Surrey Schools has made available information on student accident insurance through Insure my kids and Study Insured Student Accident. This coverage is available for purchase online, families can voluntarily purchase accident insurance through the “Insure my Kids” and “Study Insured Student Accident” programs.
Yearly plans cost between $17 (Silver/lite), $25 (Gold/Plus) and $33 (Platinum/Premium), providing a full year of coverage 24 hours a day, whether at school or at home. A discounted premium is may be available for families with three or more children.
