When possible, athletic trainers and health staff will contact parent(s)/guardian(s) before seeking treatment

 You will be required to provide health information in the registration. Athletic Trainers and health staff will refer to the registration whenever medical treatment is necessary; this is the only guide a health care provider will have in case of emergency, so make sure all health information is accurate and up to date.

Should an injury occur the event director will seek medical attention from athletic trainers, health staff, or call 911 in a medical emergency.

  1. After a youth participant has been cared for, the Event Director will notify parent/guardian of injury and details thereof.
  2. The Event Director will distribute an injury claim form to the injured participant’s parent or guardian.
  3. If parent or guardian so chooses to submit an injury claim form they will submit it to Arthur J. Gallagher Risk Management Services, Inc. Gallagher then submits the injury claim form to Health Special Risk (HSR).
  4. Upon confirmation of a covered claim, HSR will add the injury to their claims systems so that corresponding medical bills will be eligible for coverage.

Injury Claim Form

Injury Claim Form

  1. The injury claim form should be fully completed and submitted within 90 days from the date of injury. Parents are required to sign the line for authorization, so that Health Special Risk, Inc (HSR) and the doctors/hospital may communicate concerning your claim if needed.
  2. Once completed, make a photocopy for your records, and mail (email or fax) to the address shown below.
  3. DO NOT assume that anyone else will mail this claim form to HSR for you.

Incomplete claim forms are one of the most frequent reasons why claim payments are delayed.

YOUR BILLS

  1. Please advise all doctors/hospitals regarding this coverage so they may forward HSR their itemized bills.
  2. If a participant has already been to the doctor/hospital and did not know about this coverage, then they can either submit itemized bills directly to HSR at the address below or instruct the billing department to do so.
  • The bills should include the name of the doctor/hospital, their complete mailing address, telephone number, the date you were seen by the doctor/hospital, what the doctor saw you for and the specific itemized charges incurred.
  • Please note, if this information is not on the bill your claim will be denied for the missing information. “Balance Due” statements do not contain sufficient information to complete your claim. Ask your physician or hospital to provide you with a HCFA1500 or UB04 to avoid delays.

PRIMARY INSURANCE

  1. This policy provides coverage on a primary basis. All medical bills should be sent to HSR first.
  2. HSR will process benefits on a primary basis, after which, claims can be submitted to a secondary carrier, if applicable.
  3. Your secondary insurance will require a copy of HSR’s Explanation of Benefits (EOB), which will be received from HSR via mail advising if a claim was paid or denied, and the reason(s) why.

Housing/Dining

Camp health and safety regulations allow for only two persons per room, each camp participant in a single bed. Depending on residence hall layout,3 or 4 participants may share the same room or suite.. Every effort will be made to ensure each participant has a roommate. However, we cannot guarantee each event will have an even number of participants. Accommodations will be met on a case by case basis and determined by the Continuing Education Services.

While registering for the event, participants may request a roommate. All roommate requests must be reciprocated between the involved participants.  

No, entering a residence hall other than the one assigned to your event is grounds for non-refundable dismissal from the event.

Each residence hall will be locked after hours of instruction. Those participants who become locked out will need to notify the Event Director.

We have many options for campers with allergies or who follow a vegan or vegetarian lifestyle. In the dining halls we have a concept called Azone which is free from the top 8 allergens except soy on occasion. This station does not contain gluten/wheat, dairy, nuts, eggs, fish/shellfish. We also have a vegan option available at this station daily. Our dining hall has signage at each concept that displays the entree names, calories/serving size, and will also list any allergens that are in the entree if there are any. This is noted by symbols and each sign has a legend that explains what each symbol means. This signage will also indicate what items are vegan and which are vegetarian. Esker dining hall is a nut free facility in which we do not offer peanut butter to keep our campers safe.
