Accident/Sickness Insurance

Accident/Sickness Insurance


General Description

WVU departments will occasionally encounter the need for accident/sickness insurance coverage.  These are not health insurance policies.  They are policies designed to address minor accidents, injuries, or illnesses that might occur at a designated event or for a short, specific periods of time.  An example would be a week-long 4-H camp.

Purchase Information

There are a number of vendors that provide this coverage, and it is generally inexpensive coverage to obtain.  If you need assistance in identifying a vendor, please contact Risk Management.  Remember that any purchase of insurance coverage by a WVU department requires BRIM approval prior to making the purchase.
