Dear Parents/Student-Athletes: On behalf of the Athletic Training Staff, welcome back for another successful sports season at the University of North Carolina Wilmington. Enclosed you will find important information regarding the health care of our student-athletes. Please read this information carefully, fill out the appropriate forms, and return them as indicated. It is important to retain this letter throughout the year as it explains our policies regarding the health care of student-athletes.
Healthcare Insurance Mandate Because the student-athlete, parent or guardian is financially responsible for all medical treatment received from sources other than our athletic trainers, all student-athletes are required to have a basic healthcare policy which will be the primary source of payment for all medical treatment. This may be insurance students bring with them (family, employer, etc.), insurance they purchase through UNCW, or a combination of both plans. If you are interested in the insurance offered through the UNC system, it is available by visiting https://www.bcbsnc.com/content/studentblue/uncw/index.htm.
Important Paperwork: Please click on the links below for all necessary paperwork that must be filled out prior to coming to campus. Student-athletes will be withheld from athletic participation until all forms are complete.
On behalf of the Athletic Department, thank you for your cooperation in these important matters. Feel free to contact us if you have any questions.
Sincerely, Scott Hill, MSEd, LAT, ATC Director of Athletic Training
