Tips to Facilitate Care of Your Son/Daughter:

  • If there are changes in your primary insurance carrier, home address, etc., notify the Insurance Coordinator at Georgetown College immediately
  • Contact your primary insurance company prior to your child attending college with regards to coverage; some require a letter from the Registrar's Office in order to continue coverage, while others provide no out-of-area or out-of-state coverage. (A few companies will allow you to request coverage in Scott County/Georgetown to be covered.)
  • Always follow the guidelines of your primary insurance.
  • If you do not have primary insurance for your son/daughter, try to obtain some
  • If your son/daughter does see a doctor due to an injury, be sure to send the bill and EOB to the Insurance Coordinator at the College upon receiving them.
  • Remember that coverage is not guaranteed until all paperwork has been filed and approved by our insurance company
