The UNLV athletic department provides secondary medical insurance coverage for all student-athletes during the playing season provided the injury and/or illness is athletically related. The following information is designed to help explain our insurance policy, 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. You must first make a claim under your primary insurance. For those student-athletes that don't have primary coverage, the coverage provided by UNLV will become primary during the academic year. The Sports Medicine Staff must approve all referrals to specialists. Failure to gain advance approval will result in no-payment of incurred charges. The athletic department will not provide expenses for any injury or illness which is incurred outside the academic calendar; summer weight training and conditioning programs, pick-up games, or any other program which is not a regularly scheduled practice or competition. 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. Surgical expenses for a student-athlete will be covered provided the student-athlete is injured during the academic year while participating in voluntary physical activities that will prepare the student-athlete for competition.
