About the Council Accident and Sickness Plan
Insuring against possible accidents for Scouting activites
Although Scouting programs are designed for safety, accidents may happen. This insurance program is designed to help meet the costs of medical care, paralysis, dismemberment and death. Claims involving medical and surgical treatment are payable on an Excess Insurance basis described in the plan brochure.
Accident and Sickness Insurance Plan
Secondary Accident and Sickness Insurance has been purchased by our council for all packs, troops, teams, crews, and posts. This plan provides some coverage for accidental injury, illness, accidental death, and dismemberment while participating in any approved and supervised Scouting activity, including going to and from meetings. All registered youth and adult members are covered. Non-Scouts attending scheduled activities (including group travel to and from such activities) to encourage others to participate in Scouting are also automatically covered. However, the plan does not cover parents, siblings, or other guests.
