        Virginia Wesleyan College Athletics’ sports accident policy provides insurance for
student-athletes for injuries occurring while participating in the play or practice of intercollegiate
sports for Virginia Wesleyan. Its benefits are “IN EXCESS” or “SECONDARY” to any other
collectible group insurance benefits. All claims for benefits must first be filed with the group
insurance company providing coverage for the student-athlete, including parents’ insurance.
After the primary insurer has paid all available benefits, our athletic insurance company will pay
any remaining amounts, subject to limitation of our insurance policy.
        We, as the school, DO NOT have the option of waving the requirement of filing with your
group insurance.

    *Please make a copy of your Insurance card (front & back) and attach it to this form.*
