Let's get "real"...
There are (2) main areas where most emergency/support plans have certain limitations (or "gaps"):
In response to a growing number of students testing positive for COVID-19 on school campuses, and many others requiring quarantine after contact tracing, schools have been contacting SHA to provide off-site care and supervision for students, often once the student has already tested positive and needs to be isolated off-campus ASAP. Either their emergency contact was not comfortable providing care due to risk of exposure, or they were not "local" and could not pick them up quickly.
Without a reliable emergency contact or local support network, students have been left stranded and schools have had to provide care themselves with limited facilities and staff. Since schools can't predict if a student's emergency contact will not be reliable until an emergency actually happens, we created a solution to allow schools to plan ahead for, and comprehensively manage those "last minute emergency" situations through a Group Assurance Program, aka "GAP".

Do you really need GAP coverage?
Here's a good way to find out...plug in your school's data below (use example to see results):
Example GAP Calculation:
RISK 1: 15% (+) RISK 2: 20% (-) RESOURCES: 10% = 25% students still "at risk"
If your overall "Risk" is higher (or similar to) your "Resources", you may want to consider a GAP option for your school.
Based on the level of risk you want to manage, we tailor a specific plan that provides coverage and guaranteed service (including COVID-positive cases) for a specified number of students for a designated period of time as needed throughout the academic year.
Here's how "GAP" coverage works:
When a student needs to be off campus, or quarantined, the following services are activated:
"Group Assurance Plan" pricing is significantly less per-student than "Individual Enrollment" (~$2000) or enrolling during an emergency situation ($3000+). Average GAP costs per-student range from ~$100-300 per month (with at least 10 students covered). All services listed above are billed separately, and only as needed. You may choose to have any or all of these services billed directly to the school, or to the families of each student who utilizes them as part of the school's GAP program.
In order to provide any of the above services to covered students, each parent will be required to complete the Student Enrollment Packet, which allows SHA and its partners to provide the above listed services and administer any direct care (as required) for the student's health and wellbeing. *This information is only required after the school notifies SHA that the student will need to enter into our care and be moved off campus. There is no pre-enrollment paperwork, or any student information required as part of the GAP program.
GAP coverage is significantly less per-student than "Individual Enrollment" ($2000+)
Typical plans range from $100-300 per student per month, based on total # students enrolled, and the length of the coverage period.
