The Board of Trustees of Palliser Regional Schools has invested in IAP Student Accident Insurance, with enhanced coverage for the 2019-2020 school year. This provides accident insurance coverage for all students, teachers, and non-teachers on Palliser staff from the time they leave their residence to travel to school to the time they arrive at their residence (or their first destination) after school. This coverage also applies during approved and supervised school trips/activities.
This coverage is provided by Palliser at no cost to our students and staff. This enhanced coverage includes up to a maximum of $1,000 for ground ambulance service; paramedical coverage (chiropractic, osteopathy, physiotherapy and registered massage therapy); and special treatment travel coverage that reimburses for fuel expenses if special medical/dental treatment is unavailable within a radius of 80 to 160 km from the insured person’s residence.
Family Accident Reimbursement Plan - Voluntary Insurance
For your convenience, we have made arrangements for families to voluntarily purchase family accident insurance through the Family Accident Reimbursement Plan program, underwritten by iA Financial Group.
The Family Accident Reimbursement Plan is ideal for supplementing costs not covered by your provincial
health insurance or existing employer extended health and dental plans. Regardless of the size of your

Your coverage also includes a critical illness component, which pays out a lump-sum amount if any of
the covered individuals are diagnosed with one of the covered conditions. Plus, the money can be spent
however you need. Use it to pay medical expenses, take care of bills or cover income lost due to
recovery. That’s one less thing to worry about while you, or someone in your family, recovers from a
