The Coast Community College District maintains a general liability insurance policy that covers medical care for accidents and injuries that occur on district property. Examples could include student athletes who sustain injuries as a result of team practice or play, or a chemistry student who burns his/her hand on a Bunsen burner. Allied Health students who are injured at a clinical site are usually covered by worker's compensation through the clinical site, and should check with their clinical instructor for further instructions.
If you are injured on campus:
If students are injured on campus or during participation in campus sponsored activities, they must fill out insurance forms with their Athletic Coach, Campus Safety, or the Student Health Center within 72 hours of the accident to access the student accident insurance. If it is not possible to fill out the forms within 72 hours, please go to the health center as soon as possible to complete this paperwork.
The policy is valid for one (1) year from the date of injury. In order to be eligible for benetis, the student must be treated for the injury within 120 days from the date of injury. To be covered at 100%, the student must seek treatment from an Anthem Blue Cross PPO Provider.
