Student/Athletic Accident Insurance

Student/Athletic Accident Insurance

Your school has purchased accident coverage to protect all students involved in any school sponsored and  supervised activities including sports against accidental injury or death occurring while the policy is in force.

Coverage is provided by BMI Benefits, LLC. P.O. Box 511 

Matawan, NJ 07747 

Phone: 800.445.3126 Fax: 732.583.9610 

Usual & Customary benefits are provided on a full excess basis.

If your primary medical coverage is an HMO or similar plan, you must follow their rules for obtaining benefits. If the HMO is not utilized, benefits otherwise payable under this policy may be denied.

***Please note that Manchester Township Board of Education’s Student Accident policy with BMI has a $500 deductible. This deductible must be satisfied before benefits will be paid.

Following is an example of how a Full Excess claim is handled: A student incurs medical expenses of $100.00 for treatment of an injury sustained during recess. The student’s parents have private group insurance. The medical bills must first be submitted to the parent’s insurance, being the primary carrier. The primary insurance pays $65.00 of the bill and sends an explanation of benefits (EOB) to the parents. The parents then submit a copy of the original bills along with a claim form and the primary insurance EOB to Bollinger, Specialty Group, who may then apply the balance ($35) owed by the parent to the student accident policy’s $500 deductible. If the deductible has already been met, Bollinger may issue payment to either the provider directly or the parent.
