The Downingtown Area School Board is
again making available to all students in the Downingtown Area School District
student accident insurance program. Please visit your child’s school webpage on
the district website at www.dasd.org for
details. The program is underwritten by United States Fire Insurance Company
through A.G. Administrators, Inc. The annual cost of enrollment is as follows:
Hour Coverage (Accident Only) $124.00
Time Coverage (Accident Only) $28.00
Enrollment in this insurance plan is
purely voluntary on your part; however, it does provide protection for
your child at a reasonable cost. This plan features up to $250,000 of
accidental medical expenses and provides benefits for a period of one year –
see brochure online for more specific details. There is a $2,500 benefit included
for accidental death. Please note that there is no school medical
protection for those families who reject this coverage. The School District does
not carry medical insurance for students.
It is important for all parents to read
carefully the terms and conditions stated in the insurance policy before a
decision to purchase the insurance is made. You will note that certain benefits
have defined limits.
The School District will not be
responsible for any claims above the limits outlined in the policy. In other
words, this policy may not pay 100% of all costs. It is extremely important
that parents understand the exclusions and benefits offered under this program.
Parents should print, complete and sign
the online brochure application designating the desired coverage, enclose
correct premium and mail directly to the insurance company. There must
be a separate application for each child and a separate check or money order.
DO NOT SEND CASH. Your canceled check or money order will be your receipt.
