WIAA “HeadStrong” Concussion Program

The HeadStrong Concussion Insurance Program was specifically developed to insure student athletes from the high cost of concussion treatment and neurological follow up. There is no cost to member schools. The premium is paid by the WIAA.

  • The student athlete has ‘first dollar’ coverage (zero deductible) for concussion assessment and treatment.
  • Coverage is secondary/excess to any other valid and collectible insurance but will become the primary payor, if no other insurance is available.

Program Highlights Include:
** $0 deductible and no Co-pays
** Tele-med Services, when needed
** No restrictions on specific doctors
** No referrals needed for treatment
** No internal limits
** No specific procedure maximums
** Neurological follow up care When medically necessary and billed at U&C.

A Program Guide and Frequently Asked Question document can be downloaded here. Please note that all documentation and forms are handled through the Athletic Office and NOT directly with the WIAA. Therefore, if your student athlete suffers a concussion during their athletic experience here at South, please have them see the Athletic Director to start the claim process.
