For many years the IHSAA, through the sponsorship of the Iowa Farm Bureau, has provided a catastrophic accident secondary medical insurance policy issued by Mutual of Omaha Insurance Company to our member schools for participants (grades 9-12) in IHSAA sponsored athletic programs. The policy provides coverage for eligible student athletes, student managers, student trainers and student cheerleaders enrolled in grades 9-12, as well as those who have graduated the eighth grade and play baseball before beginning their ninth-grade year, who suffered catastrophic injury while participating in interscholastic competition governed by the regulations of the IHSAA. The policy also covered injuries suffered by eligible students while participating in certain related school supervised practices, tryouts, and contest related activities.
Unfortunately, as of August 1, 2018, the IHSAA will no longer be providing this insurance benefit. This letter is notice to our member schools that the last day of coverage under the existing policy is July 31, 2018. Written notice of a claim must be received by Mutual of Omaha Insurance Company within 60 days after a loss occurs or begins, or as soon as reasonably possible. Any claim is subject to the terms and restrictions of the policy.
Any claim or questions regarding this policy should be immediately directed to:
