Field trip insurance can be purchased by a department to provide additional insurance for students and volunteers participating in University-sponsored, scheduled, and supervised activities. The cost of the insurance can be paid by the department or be built into any class or program fees.
Field trip insurance is secondary insurance, meaning all participants are still required to have their own primary insurance. Not all injuries will be covered. Never tell a student that the field trip insurance or the University will pay for their injury. Have them contact Financial Services at 208-496-1901 in addition to submitting the claim to their personal insurance provider. If the claim is approved by the University's insurance company, the field trip insurance will provide coverage only AFTER the student's personal insurance.
