Last week, Governor Pat Quinn signed the "Rocky Clark" Catastrophic Insurance legislation into law. Effective August 5, 2013, each high school in the state of Illinois must obtain catastrophic accident medical insurance for its student-athletes with a minimum of $3,000,000 of coverage over a 5-year benefit period.
As the athletic/activity insurance partner of the Illinois High School Association, Dissinger Reed has reviewed numerous catastrophic plans to satisfy these minimum requirements, as well as plans that offer additional coverage and longer benefit periods. The IHSA and Dissinger Reed are pleased to offer these options through Mutual of Omaha.
School administrators are directed to the IHSA Schools Center for more information.
