Student Accident & Sickness Insurance

Student Accident & Sickness Insurance

Dear Parent/Legal Guardian: The safety of our students is one of our most important concerns. Even so, accidents do happen and resulting medical treatment (ambulance transport, surgery, hospitalization, etc.) can be very expensive.

Please know that the La Grande School District does not assume responsibility for these costs. However, as a service to you and your child, your school has joined with 1,000’s of others by offering you access to a low cost, voluntary purchase student accident/sickness insurance program. The program is arranged and administered by Myers-Stevens & Toohey & Co., Inc. a firm that has specialized in such coverages for over 40 years. 

 Several plans are offered and rates for the entire school year are very affordable. You can limit coverage to school related injuries only (including sports) or opt for 24/7 protection. As families’ needs differ, you may also choose between Low, Mid and High levels of benefits.

Also offered are a Student Accident & Sickness Plan and a pharmacy discount program for your entire family. If your child currently has coverage our plans can help “fill in the gaps” in other insurance or HMO coverage. 

 While you can seek care from any doctor or hospital, you’ll also have access to an extensive network of medical providers with discounted charges. Seeking care through contracted providers may further reduce your out-of-pocket costs, particularly if your child needs surgery or hospitalization.
