As required by the State of Illinois, Township High School District 211 provides catastrophic accident insurance coverage for student athletes. If a District 211 athlete is injured during practice or a game, and due to their injury they incur medical expenses in excess of $25,000, medical insurance is provided to cover only the amount exceeding $25,000.
It’s important to note that, with only this exception for catastrophic injury, District 211 does not carry accident insurance on students. Parents are urged to review their family health insurance plans to determine if they believe it offers adequate protection.
Should parents feel student accident coverage is necessary, the insurance plans listed below are offered through Zevitz-Redfield & Assoc., Inc. However, please note that District 211 does not prefer this coverage to any other, and these insurance options are provided only as a convenience for parents. Parents may select the basic or comprehensive plan to meet the combination of coverage and value they desire.
