What is the Migrant Student Accident Insurance?
The Migrant Education Program provides insurance to help with the cost of treatment for injuries caused by accidents. It covers accidents that occur 24 hours a day, all year.
Who is eligible for the Migrant Student Accident Insurance?
To be covered, children must be eligible for the Migrant Education Program in Oregon and currently enrolled on Oregon Migrant Student Information System (OMSIS). The insurance covers children between the ages of 3 and 21 years of age.
What does the Accident Insurance cover?
The insurance covers injuries due to accidents 24 hours a day, anywhere in the world, as long as the child is an Oregon resident. The insurance covers accidents from all interscholastic sports. The policy pays the expenses incurred for treatment, care and services within 52 weeks after the date of accident.
Here are some of the things that the insurance will cover:
Death claims and injury claims from auto accidents
· Sports injuries
· Bicycle accidents
· Playground accidents
· Dental work if teeth were injured by an accident
From the home page of the WESD:
“Our migrant children, they are our only hope... Like seedlings they have been sown in your schools. It is our wish they blossom into harvests of hope.”
Our only hope to what?!?!?! And does your school give you free health insurance for your kids or are you a second class citizen?
