University of Nevada Las Vegas Athletic Training
Dear Parents/Guardians and Student-Athletes:
On behalf of the Intercollegiate Athletic Department at the University of Nevada Las Vegas, the athletic training staff would like to welcome you and hope you enjoy an injury free career. The following information is EXTREMELY IMPORTANT! We need your time and cooperation to carefully and accurately complete all the requested information and forms. Please download the appropriate forms and return them to the athletic training department. (Links for forms below).
The UNLV Department of Athletics provides secondary medical insurance coverage for all student-athletes, provided the injury and/or illness is athletically related. The following information is designed to help explain the insurance coverage, referral procedures and any other questions that you may have concerning our athletic injury coverage.
Insurance coverage carried by UNLV Athletic Department:
This policy will be applied only to medical expenses for services rendered by a participant in our network and to those providers deemed necessary. A claim must be submitted to your primary insurance. For those Athletic scholarship student athletes that don't have primary coverage, the coverage provided by UNLV will become the primary insurance. The Athletic Training Staff must approve all referrals to medical personnel. Failure to gain advance approval will result in no-payment of incurred charges. Medical expenses for injury and/or illness not a result of athletic related activities that occur are not covered nor are they the responsibility of UNLV.
Filing a Claim:
THIS INFORMATION MUST BE COMPLETED AND RETURNED BEFORE YOU WILL BE PERMITTED TO PARTICIPATE IN PRACTICE WITH YOUR RESPECTIVE TEAM.
All information must be returned to UNLV by: July 31, 2011
