This will be the first survey of its kind to benchmark qualitative and quantitative data on costs and claims, with information from both participants and EGBAR , our proprietary, industry-leading claims management system. Other surveys, such as those from the NCAA , don’t have access to the medical expense information and sports injury data we have from working with over 675 colleges and universities across the United States. We will be presenting a truly unique report on the state of college athletics’ medical expenses that you won’t want to miss. Make sure you get on the early mailing list to receive the published results first.

What have we found out so far? Here’s a sneak peek of some of the data we’ve started compiling in our review.

9 A-G Administrators Insurance Survey Insights

Athletic directors across Division I, Division II, Division III, and NAIA schools participated in the survey and provided A-G with information about their programs.

Here’s what they told us:

1. The total number of athletes covered ranged from 120 to 1000.

2. The average insurance premium across all divisions is $200,000.

3. What the schools pay for:

  • 100% said they pay for injuries
  • 25% said they pay for general medical care
  • 26% said they pay for prescriptions
  • 16% said they pay for vision for all
  • 10% said they pay for vision for some
  • 3% said they pay for dental for all

4. Team medical providers offer some sort of sponsorship for the athletic program in 45% of schools that responded.

5. A dedicated insurance coordinator manages the insurance program for 32% of respondents, while 42% place sole responsibility on their athletic training staff.

6. Mental health coverage is the number one coverage schools wish they could offer, which recognizes the physical, academic, and mental stress student-athletes face daily.

7. Nutrition is the second area of concern, understanding that student-athletes should follow a suitable diet to provide enough energy and nutrients for training, performance, and health.

8. The average total cost per student-athlete is $575.

9. Risk Management is involved in the decision regarding coverage at 19% of institutions, and 30% include the athletics business office.

These nine insights are just a small sampling of the survey data that will be contained in the report. Combined with the information from our claims database, it will provide an invaluable picture of key insurance features, injury trends, and treatment costs you can’t get anywhere else. And, it’s information that could help you lower medical and premium costs while reducing injury risk and enhancing health and wellness for your student-athletes.
