Risk Management & Insurance
||STUDENT ACCIDENT INSURANCE
The Pinellas County School Board does not provide medical insurance coverage for students or visitors. Personal insurance carriers usually provide such coverage.
|The school district has, however, selected The Student Insurance Plan to make affordable coverage available to parents. If you don't have other insurance, this plan may be a resource to consider. Additionally, even if you have other coverage, this plan can help fill expensive "gaps" caused by deductibles and co-pays. The Student Insurance Plan does not contain a deductible provision.
Coverage may be purchased at any time during the school year by visiting the Student Insurance Website. The Student Insurance address is: UnitedHealthcare StudentResources, 805 Executive Center Drive West Suite 220, St. Petersburg, FL 33702. The telephone numbers are 866-409-5734 (Headquarters) and 888-282-5957 (Local Office).
The Pinellas County School Board, like most school boards in the State of Florida, requires students participating in certain school activities to purchase The Student Accident Insurance Plan. The Board's policy concerning this matter may be viewed by accessing the following link:

Baseball Powder Puff Football
Cross Country Tennis
Flag Football Varsity Football
Intramurals Weight Lifting
Junior Varsity Football Wrestling
The Student Accident Insurance Plan coverage is required even if the student is covered by another medical plan or program. There are no exceptions to this as it is board policy.
