Coverage Comments

  • In formulating this insurance program, it was intended by SCISDA that dancers first file claims for medical expenses with their own health and accident carriers (including employer group insurance and or Medicare) and, if necessary, to file a claim with this program for any remaining unpaid expenses.
  • Since this coverage is liability insurance, the medical expense coverage will not pay medical expenses for injury incurred at an organization activity if the injured person is a member of the organization sponsoring the activity.
  • Dancers, or groups of dancers, who go dancing independently, have only that coverage which is provided by the organization sponsoring the activity and that which may be provided by the individuals dancer’s own insurance.
  • This insurance covers the sponsoring organization against suits arising out of the negligent acts of an independent contractor; e.g., caller, cuer, etc., but does not cover the independent contractor. It is the responsibility of independent contractors to provide their own insurance.
  • This is premises liability coverage and does not cover dancers traveling to and from a sponsored activity, That is the responsibility of the individual’s own insurance coverage.

Where to File

  • An occurrence which could develope into a claim should immediately be reported to an officer of the sponsoring organization: i.e., Club, Association/Federation, or SCISDA. Using the SCISDA Accident Report form, two written reports of the occurrence should be prepared—One by the injured party and the other by the organization officer. Copies should be retained & the original sent to the Association/Federation insurance Coordinator involved who will send them to the SCISDA insurance Coordinator for transmittal to the insurance Agent.
