Dear Parents and Students,

For students who have medical insurance coverage, and those that do not, the Solanco School District provides a limited student accident policy. It assists with first dollar coverage for school time accidents to help cover unanticipated expenses. This may provide assistance with deductible coverage for qualified accidents.

If you do not have any medical coverage, you can voluntarily add to the district base accident coverage plan (which is school-time/school functions only) to either broaden the school-time coverage or, buy-up to provide 24-hour accident coverage.

If you do have coverage with a private plan or through work, the base plan provided coordinates with your plan to assist with deductibles and co-pays. Many insurance plans have a substantial deductible and the enclosed plan is designed to pick up the first-dollar coverage in the unfortunate event of a student accident.

The Solanco School District works hard to provide a safe and secure environment for all students both in and outside of our buildings. We strive to regularly address safety issues and concerns as thousands of students come and go each day. By any measure, we do a good job. Unfortunately, accidents happen, and when they do, we do the best we can to address the student’s needs and medical care. In so doing, that care often involves a quick trip to the doctor’s office, ER observation, or even an x-ray. For this reason, the district’s plans coordinate with your plan to cover out-of-pocket expenses in cases like these.

You can enjoy the peace of mind offered via voluntary 24-hour school insurance by selecting the plan and premium below (see brochure on the district web site) that best fits your needs:

A. Year Round 24-Hour Coverage $75 per year
B. Dental Accident Coverage $8.50 per year

A complete description of the plans, including coverage, is available on the district web site, Student Accident Insurance Information . Instructions for enrolling can also be found there. You will need to fill out a paper (hard copy) application and mail it with a check to AMA (American Management Advisors, Inc.) To access the brochure, enrollment form, claim forms, and additional information use the same link as above.
If you do not have access to the internet and have an interest in the program, please contact your school office and they will be glad to assist. As you consider these options, please remember that Solanco School District’s insurance base plan has limited coverage for accidents at school.

The local administrator for the program is Murray Insurance Associates, P.O. Box 310, Quarryville, PA 17566.

If you have any questions, please contact the District office, your school office, or Murray Insurance Associates at 717-786-2161.

Sincerely,
