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. The insurance covers part, but not all, of the cost. The insurance does not cover treatment for illness or previously existing conditions.
If a migrant family has other insurance, the Migrant Student Accident Insurance covers part of the cost not covered by the other insurance plan. Parents should send a claim form to their other insurance company first, and then to the Migrant Education Program.
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 ages who have not graduated or received a GED. The insurance is for Oregon residents only. If a student moves out of Oregon, coverage runs out in 30 days.
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. Parents are responsible for the costs not covered by the accident insurance.
Here are some of the things that the insurance will cover:
- Death claims and injury claims from auto accidents
- Sport injuries
- Bicycle accidents
- Playground accidents
- Dental work if teeth were injured by accident
- Surgery due to an accident, up to one year after the accident
- Bee stings and animal bites
- Injuries from sexual assault
- Injuries from fighting that was not initiated by the victim
