Catastrophic Insurance Information: All students participating in athletics (including try-outs) in the Georgetown ISD must purchase a catastrophic insurance policy arranged by the school district. Generally, this blanket policy pays for medical expenses which exceed $25,000 per occurrence. The cost for this insurance is $10.00 for a student who participates in football and $5.00 for a student who participates in a sport other than football. Payment is due at the time that the physical packet is submitted.
Primary Health Insurance Information: It is highly recommended that all students participating in athletics have personal health insurance. IF A STUDENT DOES NOT HAVE VALID PERSONAL INSURANCE COVERAGE, A VOLUNTARY POLICY IS HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. The catastrophic insurance policy is different from the voluntary policy.
There are many voluntary insurance plans that individuals may sign up for with various companies. The following information is for one of the insurance companies that has reached out to us to offer supplemental insurance or primary insurance information for those children who may not have it. Because GISD is not directly affiliated with any insurance companies, please direct any questions to the Health Special Risk Texas office whose information may be found under "Contact Us" on the website.
