Student Accident Insurance and Family Health Insurance

With health insurance costs on the rise, more and more people have limited or no coverage for their families.  If an accident happens at school, a family's health care coverage normally covers the cost, but what do you do if you have limited or no coverage?

Minnesota Health Care ProgramsMinnesota offers several health care programs to people who qualify. To see if you qualify for Medical Assistance, MinnesotaCare or other programs, see the corresponding document below.

Student Accident InsuranceAt a low cost, parents of children in pre-school (ages three and up) through grade 12, can purchase accident insurance coverage for those incidents that happen during the school day that cannot be helped (this does not include illnesses). There are three levels of coverage with options varying from school-time accident coverage, 24-hour accident coverage, football and 24-hour dental.

Additional information and to sign-up for the insurance coverage can be found on the K-12 Student Insurance website. Below you will also find documents explaining benefits of coverage and special coverage you can get for certain sports/football.
