Today, more institutions are beginning to offer student accident insurance. It is becoming an important component of the overall coverage for a student’s auto insurance. Most insurance companies have also made student insurance plans available on the Internet. Therefore, it is easier than ever for prospective students to obtain affordable and comprehensive insurance policies online.
A Voluntary participation student accident insurance policy is now being offered to all full time students. This plan is administrated by the Bollinger Insurance. For more detailed information about the different benefits provided under the different plans available, as well as the standard “school-time” student insurance, please visit the Bollinger website for more detailed information. The benefits and cost factors for each plan vary, so you will need to consider them carefully before settling on a particular plan.
If you are employed during the school year and take advantage of voluntary student accident insurance coverage, you will be able to keep your coverage through the end of your school year, provided that you meet the requirements. These requirements generally depend on your location, the type of plan that you select and whether or not your employer is participating in a group plan. You should check with the Insurance Information Institute to determine what the basic requirements are in your state. In most cases, the cost of coverage declines significantly when your school year starts – at least by a few dollars.
The majority of voluntary student accident insurance plans provide coverage for most injuries resulting from auto accidents involving a motor vehicle. However, some plans do require a specified amount of medical coverage to be provided. In addition, the majority of policies do not require you to carry comprehensive or collision coverage while driving to and from school or work. (Collision coverage and comprehensive coverage are two different types of insurance coverage and typically carry a different premium rate.) If you do have this coverage, it is strongly recommended that you carry at least the minimum required by your state’s insurance department.

When choosing a policy, it is important that you choose one that will provide a maximum amount of medical insurance coverage. Many student accident insurance plans provide at least a $500 maximum medical expense limit, but keep in mind that this amount may change from year to year. Also, you will want to check your policy to see how much you will be responsible for paying for each month. In many instances, this amount will be reimbursed to you through your school district’s financial aid program. (The details of the program vary by school district and you should contact your school’s financial aid office.) If you are injured in an accident while traveling from school to home or from work to school, you may be covered even if your own medical insurance costs are covered by your employer’s medical insurance policy.
Although student accident insurance coverage is not always required by state law, it is strongly recommended. In fact, it is strongly suggested that all students be covered under some type of medical coverage during the school year. The cost of getting this coverage should be considered when deciding whether or not to cancel your college plan or to delay or increase your enrollment. There is no doubt that the price of premiums for college medical insurance is more expensive than the price of attending school. (There are even some parents who choose not to pay for any medical coverage at all for their children because of the high price of premiums.) So, if you have families that are financially able to pay for at least part of your college costs, then you are likely going to need student accident insurance.
