Medical Insurance for Athletics

Medical Insurance for Athletic Participation

Ed Code Secion 32221.5
State law requires school districts to ensure that all members of school athletic teams have accidental injury insurance that covers medical and hospital expenses should the situation arise. The insurance requirements CAN be met by the school district offering insurance or other health benefits that cover medical and hospital expenses. However, the school district is not required to provide you medical insurance for athletic participation.

Some student-athletes and current students may qualify to enroll in low-cost or no-cost local, state of federal sponsored health insurance programs. Please contact the district office for more information about health insurance requirements and options.
