Our school district has made arrangements with Griffin Insurance to provide student accident and health insurance for those wishing to purchase coverage this year. Please note the coverage shown on the application. Covered losses less than $250 are paid without regard to other insurance. Please note the option to purchase 24 hour accident and sickness coverage is available to be purchased within 75 days of the school year or moving into the district of loss of other coverage.
Senior High football coverage requires an additional premium. All other school supervised sports are covered under the plan. On claims over $250 this is an excess coverage policy for which benefits are payable only for that part of the loss not covered by other collectible insurance. If a person has no other insurance, the Company will pay the covered medical expenses incurred within one year, up to the specified limits of the policy.
Please note that the student applications will be available on our website. Complete the application and check the boxes for coverage desired. Sign where life insurance is shown, if desired. Tear off and keep the rest of the application, as it shows not only the coverage but the exclusions and limitations of the policy.
Mail the applications directly to Griffin Insurance, 300 Coshocton Avenue, Mount Vernon, OH 43050 along with a money order of check payable to Griffin Insurance. The school will be notified as to who takes out coverage. You can call Griffin Insurance at 1-800-278-2544 for more information.
In case of an accident or sickness, the student or parent should immediately go to the building principal who will sign and provide the claim form if only school time coverage is taken out. 24 hour coverage needs no signature. The policy number shall be provided by the school for the claim or you can call 1-800-278-2544. You may give that policy number to the doctor or hospital but the bills should be sent to the parent or guardian who attach them to the claim form. Once completed, mail to the claims office at Guarantee Trust Life Insurance, PO Box 1148, Glenview, IL 60025. If you have any further questions regarding a claim, please call 1-800-622-1993. It is the responsibility of the parent or guardian to file the claim.
