POLICY STATEMENT

(1) Western Oregon University is to coordinate the coverage for health insurance the athlete's family has, or is individually purchased by the student athlete, with that of the University's secondary medical insurance program, which is financed from Incidental Fees provided for athletic programs and administrative expenses. 

(2) Participants in the Western Oregon University athletic programs must place their required family or personal comprehensive individual insurance program information on file with the Western Oregon University Athletic Office: 

(a) Before receiving clearance to participate in any countable athletic-related activity; and 

(b) Before any athlete is allowed to participate in any games, scrimmages or any other countable athletic-related activity, including conditioning activities and tryouts. 

(3) The essence of this co-insurance program is:

(a) The injured student will first utilize the primary family or personal insurance; 

(b) The portion not paid by the primary family or personal insurance will be paid by Western Oregon University athletic insurance financed by Incidental Fees; 

(c) The University's athletic insurance coverage will pay the remainder, up to where the NCAA Catastrophic Insurance is activated.
