The Blackhawk Area Council Provides Supplemental Accident Insurance

The Blackhawk Area Council provides accident insurance coverage to all units for all registered youth and all registered adults. This is being provided through your unit’s support of the Family Friends of Scouting funding campaign.

This accident insurance will be in effect from January 1 to December 31, and is provided through Health Special Risk, Inc.

Excess Insurance Plan

The insurance plan is an Excess Insurance Plan meaning that the Plan will pay all those eligible expenses incurred from a covered accident not paid by any other collectible insurance or pre-paid health plan in-force for you or a dependent child. If no other collectible insurance or pre-paid health plans are in effect at the time of the loss, this plan will pay all eligible covered expenses up to the plan limits. There is no deductible under this plan.
