Play It Safe Concussion Insurance

Play It Safe Concussion Insurance is an active supplemental insurance policy for the registered players in the Scottsdale Soccer Blackhawks Competitive Program (8/1/2016 - 7/31/2017).  There is no need to enroll!  All of our Blackhawks players automatically have access to this program, courtesy of Scottsdale Soccer.

Insurance Coverage

This policy goes into effect once a youth athlete has been diagnosed with a concussion.  Once a concussed player’s personal insurance coverage is exceeded, certain additional medical expenses related to the concussion — including the post-injury test — may be billed to an excess insurance policy that’s included in the program.  In the absence of any other coverage, this plan will provide primary coverage benefits up to the policy’s maximum limitations and exclusions.  This coverage may help lessen the potential financial burden on families.  This program’s insurance policy covers the treatment of concussions and offers a maximum medical benefit of $25,000 per injury, with no deductible and no copays.  Please confirm insurance information with all providers you work with to manage coverage and expectations when an injury situation occursAlways ask your provider(s) what procedures / therapies / services / facilities may or may not be covered by this insurance as this insurance is a supplemental (limited pay) policy and does not cover all procedures / therapies / services / facilities.  Emergency room visits are not covered with this policy.

Benefits of the Excess Policy

• Access to trained medical providers for injury evaluation

If an athlete appears to have sustained a concussion during Scottsdale Soccer Blackhawks approved events (League Games, Tournaments, Practice, Approved Team Activities and Scrimmages), he or she is immediately pulled from play.  The athlete is referred for clinical assessment and specialty care by a medical professional, Medical Doctor (MD) or Doctor of Osteopathy (DO), who is trained in the evaluation and management of concussions.  The athlete cannot return to soccer activities until they have been cleared by a medical professional, Medical Doctor (MD) or Doctor of Osteopathy (DO). 

Post-injury testing

The athlete then undergoes a post-injury test and evaluation and the results are compared to any available baseline test or age-appropriate normative data to help the medical professional, Medical Doctor (MD) or Doctor of Osteopathy (DO), determine the scope and magnitude of the concussion.

• Follow-up and safe return to play

The medical professional, Medical Doctor (MD) or Doctor of Osteopathy (DO), provides the athlete with an individual follow-up plan that may include rest, gradual re-exertion and reevaluation.  The athlete continues with follow-up care until cleared by a qualified medical professional, Medical Doctor (MD) or Doctor of Osteopathy (DO), for safe return to play.  When medically cleared, the athlete will follow Scottsdale Soccer's Return to Play progression.
