Steps for Filling a Claim (Claim Form Below):
- One claim form for each accident needs to be submitted. However, this is not a guarantee of benefits but only an explanation that is subject to all applicable terms, conditions, limitations, and exclusions of the plan.
- A school official must complete Part A for all school-related accidents. The parent or guardian must complete all questions in Part B – Parent Statement. Only if the accident is non-school related and the family has purchased additional insurance coverage (24- Hour Coverage, Extended Dental Coverage), the parent or guardian may complete Part A. Print a copy of the claim form to present to the treating physician or facility so they might understand what is needed from them to process your claim. Do NOT depend on the medical provider to submit the claim form. You should submit the claim directly to claims office within 90 days from the date of injury.
- You will need to send copies of itemized bills. These are the original billings you receive, not monthly statements. These itemized bills often called UB04 or CMS 1500 provide the Address, Procedure Code, Diagnosis Code, and the Provider's Tax ID Number.
- You will need to submit copies of all bills to your family and/or group insurance, even if you have a large deductible. This plan is supplemental to all other valid coverage. You must file a claim with your other insurance first. This plan does not cover penalties imposed for failure to use providers preferred or designated by your primary coverage. After you have received payment or copies of “Explanation of Benefits” (EOB) from your family insurance company or insurance administrator (Blue Cross, Group Health, Prudential Insurance, etc.), send copies of itemized bills and your other insurance E.O.B.'s to: (Does not apply to our primary plans)
