Athletic Insurance Information
University Athletic Training staff makes every effort to create the
safest environment possible for athletic participation. Unfortunately,
injuries do occur. As a result, Lynn University has purchased a
secondary insurance policy for all student-athletes. Please note that
our insurance policy only covers injuries sustained during supervised
participation in intercollegiate athletics and that all medical bills are in your name. Refer to the Insurance Claims Procedure for important information regarding your role in assuring all invoices are processed in a timely fashion.
Lynn University requires all student-athletes competing in intercollegiate athletics to provide proof of health insurance coverage prior to any participation. Your personal health insurance plan will act as a primary carrier for all medical coverage. Domestic students who do not have health insurance will be enrolled in a Student Accident and Sickness Insurance Policy offered by the University. All F-1 visa students are required to have Cultural Insurance Services International (CISI) insurance coverage for health, medical evacuation and repatriation during their entire enrollment period.
The Lynn University Athletics Department’s insurance policy (Bollinger, Inc.) is a secondary policy, providing up to 100% payment of the medical costs not covered by your primary insurance, up to $90,000 per intercollegiate athlete, per year. Coverage provided by Bollinger, Inc. is limited in its services up to one year exactly past the initial injury date.
All medical appointments must be pre-approved and arranged by the Lynn University Athletic Training staff in order to be covered by the athletic insurance policy.
The Athletic Training staff will provide appointments or referrals for non-athletic-related injuries/illnesses, with the understanding that the student-athlete assumes full financial responsibility for such appointments.
If a student-athlete's primary insurance does not provide coverage in Palm Beach or Broward County, or does not cover injuries sustained during intercollegiate athletics, Bollinger, Inc. will act as the primary insurance carrier provided proper documentation is submitted. This documentation may include a letter from the parent (s)/guardian(s), a letter from the parent(s)/guardian(s) employer and/or a letter from the student-athlete's primary insurance carrier stating the coverage guidelines. Please note, however, that Bollinger, Inc. only covers acute athletic-related injuries that occur while participating in required conditioning, practices or games. Any other illnesses, pre-existing conditions, appointments necessary for athletic clearance, or injuries not directly related to athletic participation are not covered under the athletic department insurance policy. This includes flu-like illnesses, asthma, cardiac conditions, etc. Therefore, it is strongly suggested to purchase health insurance for non-athletic-related injuries your son/daughter may encounter while away at school.

Please be sure to completely fill out the Insurance Questionnaire. This information will be provided to the medical vendors in the event medical charges do occur. Also, please include a copy of the front and back of your current insurance card.
