Student Accident Insurance
BRSD provides Blanket Student Accident Insurance, plus the Enhanced Option, for our students.
Our schools participate in a program which provides accident insurance to eligible students who are residents of Canada, at no cost to parents. Full-time students are automatically covered. International students and foreign exchange students are not eligible for this program. All eligible students are covered for injuries sustained while attending classes plus during school sanctioned trips and activities. Evenings, weekends and holidays are excluded, except in the event of a school activity. Medical and/or dental expenses incurred as a result of injury can be reimbursed after all other sources of insurance (such as provincial health and the parents' employer insurance) are exhausted. Various other benefits may also be payable.
School Premises Coverage
Coverage begins when the Insured Person leaves their residence to travel to school and ends upon arrival at their residence after school. Coverage also applies during approved and supervised school trips/activities.
Injury sustained by the Insured Person while:
(a) in or on school buildings or premises by reason of attending classes on any regular school day;
(b) in attendance at or participating in any school activity approved and supervised by proper school authority;
(c) travelling directly to or from any regularly scheduled and approved school activity under the direction or supervision of a proper school authority;
(d) travelling directly to or from the insured person's residence and school for the purpose of attending classes or participating in any school sponsored activity.
"Travelling Directly" is defined as "any travel that would take the Insured Person directly to or from his Residence and the school along the most normal and reasonable route without delay or stopover." Therefore, a child staying at the playground after classes have ended would no longer be covered under School Premises coverage because travel to the residence has been delayed.
Parents with other insurance (employer benefits, etc) must submit claims to the other insurance carrier(s) first.
Link to claim form: Blanket Student Accident Claim Form
The nature of the claim will determine what (if any) additional forms must be completed. iA Financial Group reserves the right to request additional information when processing the claim.
Original receipts must be attached for eligible expenses being claimed, except in the case where they were already submitted to another insurance carrier. In those instances the explanation of benefits from the other insurer must be submitted along with the iA Financial Group claim form.
Written notice of claim is to be given to iA Financial Group within a period of 30 days from the date of the accident. Completed claim forms must be filed with iA Financial Group within 90 days after the date of the injury and no later than one year regardless of whether the full extent of loss is known.
For assistance with submitting a claim or to obtain claim status, parents may contact iA Financial Group at 1-800-266-5667.
Additional Voluntary Plans Available
Family Accident Reimbursement Plan (a voluntary program which will provide comprehensive insurance coverage for the whole family) is set at one monthly rate regardless of how many family members are covered under the policy (rather than on an individual family member basis) and renews automatically each year rather than everyone having to renew their plans every year. It is entirely voluntary for parents to purchase this 24 hour coverage. Click on the link below for more information.
