The University awarded a contract for Accident Medical Insurance to Summit America Insurance, Salt Lake City, UT, for an estimated $49,700.
Chicago State University operates a NCAA Division 1 intercollegiate athletic program that requires the procurement of accident medical insurance coverage for all student-athletes affiliated with the program throughout the 2012-2013 academic year.
This purchase is only economically available from a single source because the NCAA-sponsored basic accident medical insurance pool is offered to NCAA Division 1 institutions and other insurance carriers declined to provide competitive quote.
