Insurance Policy
All Newberry College student-athletes MUST have a primary health insurance policy that includes minimum of $10,000 of athletic injury coverage.  Newberry College provides secondary insurance coverage for all student-athletes as required by the NCAA. If a student-athlete sustains an injury, and he/she is referred by a Newberry College Athletic Training staff member to receive care beyond the staff’s capabilities and/or qualifications, the student-athlete’s primary insurance will be filed first. As soon as the primary insurance has made payment, Newberry College’s secondary insurance will then be filed. After both insurances have been filed, any remaining balance is the student-athlete’s responsibility. Newberry College will make no direct payment for medical expenses incurred as a result of athletic practice or competition outside the limitation of our secondary insurance policy.

It is the responsibility of the student-athlete to notify Newberry College Athletic Training of any changes in or lapses of coverage. If a student-athlete fails to notify Newberry College Athletic Training of such changes or lapses, he/she is solely responsible for any chargers incurred. If a student-athlete chooses to obtain medical care without the referral of a Newberry College Athletic Training staff member, he/she is responsible for the filing of proper paperwork with his/her insurance company and Newberry College Athletics secondary insurance policy.

Newberry College Athletics secondary insurance will be filed for injuries sustained as a direct result of participation in Newberry College Athletics sponsored events only.
