North Okanagan-Shuswap School District No. 83 does not provide accident insurance coverage for student injuries that occur on school premises or during off-site school activities.~ Accidents can and do happen.~ Some injuries incur medical, dental or other expenses that are not covered by provincial health care or employer group plans.~ As a parent or guardian, you become responsible for these expenses.
To help protect our students, the District suggests that parents/guardians check with your local insurance provider or online on-line for other options.
One available insurer is the insuremykids® Protection Plan through Reliable Life Insurance Company.~ Participation in this program is voluntary and the parent or guardian pays the costs.
This program offers a variety of plans and benefits at affordable rates.~ Benefits included are:
ï~dental expenses (resulting from an accident)
ï~total and permanent disability
ï~paralysis/loss of use
ï~special disability benefits
If your child participates in co-curricular activities or activities outside the school day, there is a plan tailored to these needs.~ All rates are one-time annual premiums.~ Family rates for 3 or more children are also offered.
Any questions should be directed to Reliable Life Insurance Company toll free at: 1-800-463-KIDS (5437).
