Insurance Claim Checklist
- Claimant must be registered at time the injury took place
- Claimant's injury must have taken place on an insured field location
- Report of the injury must be received by the State Office either by phone or email within 7 days
- Claim form, verified by a witness, must be submitted and received by MSYSA State Office for verification no later than 30 days from date of injury
- $500 deductible applies for all eligible claim
- Include a copy of Permission to Travel approval (if injury took place outside Michigan)
All injuries from MSYSA or US Youth Soccer activities must be reported, in writing, to both the member organization and MSYSA via phone or e-mail within 7 days. All claims are required to first be made through member's primary insurance carrier prior to being submitted to MSYSA. The Michigan State Youth Soccer Association excess accident medical insurance policy is secondary insurance. Failure to follow the rules of your primary healthcare coverage will result in a benefit reduction of eligible expenses to 50% of the amount otherwise paid. Any claims not submitted to MSYSA within 30 days will be denied.
