TO: Parents of USF Student-athletes FROM: USF Sports Medicine RE: HMO Insurance Plans The USF Athletic Department athletic accident policy provides insurance for a student-athlete’s injuries incurred while participating in a USF sanctioned practice or game. This insurance is “EXCESS” or “SECONDARY” to any other collectable group insurance benefits. Any claim for benefits must first be filed with the athlete’s primary insurance company. After the primary insurance has paid all available benefits, the USF athletic insurance company will pay any remaining amounts based on REASONABLE and CUSTOMARY charges. If you have managed care insurance, otherwise known as an HMO, we strongly urge you to change your primary care physician (PCP) to one of our USF team physicians (if you have a HMO family plan, most insurance carriers will allow you to change the PCP for one member of the plan without affecting the PCP for the other members covered by the plan.) Changing the PCP for your son/daughter will benefit you and your family in many ways: 1. Allow your son/daughter easy access to their PCP, as our USF team physicians are located on campus less than a mile from our athletic facilities. 2. Expedite your son/daughter’s medical care by removing the need for a prior approval from another PCP before seeing our team physicians. 3. Cut down on medical costs to you in the event that a non-athletic injury does occur; these injuries and illnesses are not covered by the USF policy and all costs will be the responsibility of the patient. 4. Allow for better communication regarding injuries between all parties involved (including athletic trainers, team physicians, student-athletes and parents.) To switch the primary care physician for your son/daughter, simply contact your insurance carrier at the phone number listed on your insurance card. They will ask you for the name of the physician of which you would like to switch; our head team physician’s name and address is listed below for your convenience. When calling our doctors, please identify yourself as a parent of a USF athlete to expedite the procedure. Please notify the sports medicine department at (813) 974-0514 when the change of the PCP has been made. Additionally, if you have any questions regarding our insurance policy or our team physicians, please do not hesitate to call. Thank you for your attention to this matter. Address and Phone Number: Dr. Eric Coris 12901 Bruce B. Downs Blvd. USF Medical Center Tampa, FL 33612 (813) 974-2201
