Information from PISD

Voluntary Student Accident Insurance

Student insurance is available for purchase through Markel Insurance Company. Parents can enroll students online using Markel’s secure enrollment website or by

calling 877-444-5014. The website address is http://markel.sevencorners.com/. On this website, parents are able to:

• View all coverage and premium options

Download and print Claim Forms

• Review a Frequently Asked Questions section

Purchase the insurance using credit/debit card and print confirmation of purchase

Student accident insurance provides coverage for accident/injury only. It does not cover medical expenses for sickness/illness, preventive care and routine visits. Please see the attached for specific policy exclusions and limitations. Parents are responsible for enrollment and payment of premium directly to Markel Insurance Company.

Due to increasing deductibles and co-insurance requirements, it can be difficult for families to cope with unexpected medical costs. The district provides parents with the option to purchase student accident insurance in the unfortunate event of accidental injury to their child. It is important that parents are aware of this coverage to enable them to review the information and determine its value for their individual family situation. Please share the attached brochures with parents at your location.
