These are the activities or events in which Home School students, teachers, and volunteers participate. They are planned throughout the year, and can be educational, recreational, and/or spiritual in nature.
This means that the policy pays after any other available insurance pays. If no other insurance is available (Group, Individual, Auto) then the policy becomes primary and pays, without deductibles. In addition, if other coverage is available, this plan would pay out-of-pocket expenses such as deductibles and co-insurance.
The insurance companies have assumed in their pricing that the number of students and volunteers shown on the application will remain constant throughout the policy term. No additional premium or refunds will be made during the policy term, unless the enrollment increases or decreases by more than 10%. Please notify your Customer Service contact if enrollment changes by more than 10%, as either a refund may be due or an additional premium charge may be due. However, a minimum premium amount will still be required.
An Accident Medical policy will be sent to each group enrolled. A Certificate of Insurance (including policy number, coverage outline, and effective dates of coverage) will be sent in lieu of a General Liability policy. You may request a copy of the policy by contacting your Customer Service representative.

In today’s litigious society, every organization is vulnerable to lawsuits. Accident Medical Insurance provides valuable protection for the students, and also serves as a buffer to protect the organization’s General Liability limits from catastrophic losses. General Liability Insurance is generally required when using rented facilities, so this important coverage allows your organization to comply with those requirements, while also protecting the organization from possible litigation.
All signed Waivers should be kept on file by your Organization. They do not need to be submitted to us. Copies of the completed Waivers my be requested by the General Liability Carrier in the event of a claim.
An HSLDA Discount Group is a homeschool organization that has qualified to offer an HSLDA discount to its members, and has a Discount Group number. Basic requirements for an application are:
The group serves ten (10) or more families.
The group also meets the definition of “Homeschool Group,” as follows:
A state or local homeschool group is a group, co-op program, or other organization which exists expressly to provide “in-person” support, activities, information, and/or encouragement such as support group meetings, co-ops, field trips, sports programs, curriculum fairs, etc., specifically for homeschooling families. Homeschool service providers, PACs, social media groups, email lists, website-only groups, and other homeschool network resources are listed separately under National Vendors/Homeschool Networks.
If you just need to know what the pricing would be at this time, you can calculate the estimated premium by multiplying the estimated number of participants that you have in your group by the rates on the appropriate application(s). These Insurance programs are based on participant numbers.
One of the methods used to keep the premiums as low as possible is the utilization of a “Master Policy.” This means coverage is provided with a singular policy which is provided through the “Youth Group Insurance Trust.” In lieu of a policy, participating organizations are issued a Certificate of Insurance, which provides the limits of coverage, policy term, and policy number.
Copies of the Youth Group Insurance Trust and policies, including coverage forms, are available to enrolled participating organizations upon request.
