How much are the students required to pay and what is the coverage?
Part of the supplementary fees collected from students are used to purchase the Group Personal Accident Insurance Policy. No additional sum of monies need to be paid by the student. The insurance premium for GHSI(IS) and GHSI(Healthcare) will be included in the fees at the start of each academic term and the rate payable is subject to yearly review. The premium is indicated at the ITE website. Students may also log in to their Student Portal (www.ite.edu.sg) for more details on the insurance coverage.
If the accident does not occur in the College ground, can student claim the insurance?
Yes. The Group Personal Accident Insurance Policy has a 24-hour worldwide coverage.
What is the claiming procedure? How long does it take for the whole procedure to be completed?
The injured student is required to complete the relevant Claim Form which is obtainable at the Customer & Visitor Centre (CVC). The activity staff-in-charge or the Class Advisor will have to fill up an (1) Accident Report Form and submit it with the (2) completed Claim Form and the (3) student’s original receipts of claim at the dropbox at CVC. All claims must be submitted within 30 days from the date of the accident. Original receipts of follow-up claims must also be submitted within 1 month from the date of receipt.
