Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the School Code. Provides that a public school district maintaining grades kindergarten through 8 may (instead of the school board of any school district may, in its discretion) provide medical or hospital service or both through accident and health insurance or through non-profit hospital service corporations or medical service plan corporations or both for pupils of the district in grades kindergarten through 8 (instead of for all pupils of the district) injured while participating in an athletic activity. Provides that a public school district maintaining grades 9 through 12 shall provide catastrophic accident insurance coverage, with specified benefit limits, for eligible students in grades 9 through 12 who sustain an accidental injury while participating in school-sponsored or school-supervised interscholastic athletic events sanctioned by the Illinois High School Association ("IHSA") that results in medical expenses in excess of $50,000. Sets forth similar provisions for non-public schools for school-sponsored or school-supervised interscholastic athletic tournaments sanctioned by the IHSA. Provides that the IHSA has the exclusive authority to promulgate a plan of coverage necessary to ensure compliance with these provisions. Requires the IHSA to provide a group policy. Allows public school districts and non-public schools to purchase the coverage necessary by participating in the group policy, obtain the coverage necessary from other coverage providers, or, in the case of the Chicago school district, provide the catastrophic accident insurance coverage through a program of self-insurance. Sets forth provisions concerning the charges for procedures, treatments, services, or prescription pharmaceuticals covered. Effective July 1, 2013.

Senate Committee Amendment No. 1
Deletes the provisions concerning the charges for procedures, treatments, services, or prescription pharmaceuticals covered; makes related changes.

Senate Floor Amendment No. 2
Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Reinserts the contents of the bill as amended by Senate Amendment No. 1, with the following changes. Provides that the catastrophic accident insurance shall have aggregate benefit limits of $3 million or 5 years (instead of $7.5 million or 15 years), whichever occurs first. Provides that any public or non-public school that requires students participating in school-sponsored or school-supervised interscholastic athletic events sanctioned by the IHSA (including direct and uninterrupted travel to and from the athletic event as well as during a temporary stay at the location of an athletic event held away from the student's school) to have personal accident and health insurance is exempt from the insurance on athletes requirements. Effective July 1, 2013.

Senate Floor Amendment No. 3
Changes references of "personal accident and health insurance" to "individual or group policy of accident and health insurance".
