Accidents & Insurance
PARENT PAID ACCIDENT INSURANCE
Playgrounds are a place of fun and excitement where children can physically challenge themselves and make new friends, but they also present risks and dangers. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), each year hospital emergency rooms treat more than 200,000 children age fourteen and younger for playground-related injuries. Of those playground injuries, the vast majority occur at schools and daycare facilities.
Although reasonable precautions are undertaken by the NHCS, it is inevitable that accidents happen. The NHCS is not automatically responsible for the medical bills of injured students.
Parents do have the option of buying low-cost accident insurance for their children. There are a variety of choices in the amount of coverage and the prices. The lowest price plan is just $9.00 for the whole school year.
