Washburn University Board of Regents
SUBJECT: Basic Athletic Injury Insurance
The University is in the second year of a five-year contract with Flynn and Associates whereby the latter annually arranges for basic athletic injury insurance. This coverage is for participants in all intercollegiate sports. In late July, Flynn and Associates recommended to the administration that the University accept an offer from the CIGNA insurance company. The new one year policy provides the same coverage as did the 1998-1999 policy. The premium is 4.1 % higher than the previous year.
The premium amount is $25,384 budgeted in the Tort Claim Fund.
President Farley recommends that the Board approve the award of the one year basic athletic injury insurance policy to CIGNA Insurance Company with an annual premium of $25,384.
