FAQ

What if I get injured while participating in intercollegiate sports?
For non-emergencies, please contact the athletic trainers to inform them of the injury. Your athletic trainer will begin your treatment and/or refer you to appropriate medical care. Bucks Athletic Trainers work with various physicians and specialists for a variety of conditions. We will provide you with suggestions, but ultimately you may see the physician of your choosing.

If you need medical care that results in medical expenses, Bucks does provide an excess insurance policy to help defray the cost of medical care but only after your primary insurance covers their portion (athlete must have primary insurance). Medical bills are submitted to the student-athlete’s primary insurance carrier (personal or parents/guardians) first. The College athletic accident insurance is an excess policy and takes effect after bills have been considered by your primary insurance carrier. Please be aware that Bucks does not pay for any athlete medical expenses. The athlete's primary insurance and excess insurance coordinate to pay appropriate injury medical expenses.  Any remaining expenses become the responsibility to the athlete and their parents/guardians.

If you are injured during an official athletic practice or contest in which a coach is present and are referred to a physician or emergency room for further care, please contact Head Athletic Trainer Josh McCune at  to assist you with the claims process. The insurance company requires an insurance claim form to be completed within 90 days of the date of injury.

Athletic excess insurance is provided for you free of charge but is limited to injuries that result directly from participation in athletics. Coverage by this policy is limited to athletic injuries occurring during official practices, competitions, and travel to and from competitions.  The excess insurance does not cover illnesses, skin infections, training on your own, or captain lead practices, nor does it cover overuse injuries or non-athletic related injuries.
