Parents: Student accident insurance is available

Accidents can happen so easily, especially with children and youth. Each year, thousands of families have to pay medical and dental bills when their children are injured at school, at sporting events, on field trips or even at home. The most minor of accidents can result in major financial responsibilities which exceed or are not covered by OHIP or employer group insurance plans.

Student Accident Insurance is a way to protect your family from these unexpected expenses.

Hastings and Prince Edward District School Board has made available information for an Injury and Accidental Death Insurance Program for students. Participation is voluntary and costs are paid by parents or guardians. The insurance agreement is between you and Old Republic Insurance Company of Canada.

Benefits include:

  • Dental accidents
  • Fractures and dislocations
  • Ambulance costs beyond OHIP coverage
  • Rehabilitation
  • Private tutoring needed as a result of injury or accident
  • Physiotherapy
  • Permanent disability
  • Death benefit and more

Pennies a day can provide a simple, easy way to possibly help with some medical and dental expenses.
