With over 34 years of insurance experience for governing organizations and high school associations, Dissinger Reed understands the unique special risks involved with the NFHS and its members. The NFHS and Dissinger Reed have specifically designed an insurance plan to cover Officials and all registered member Associations. Plan details are as follows:



As a member of the National Federation of High Schools Officials Association, you are provided with an insurance package which includes, General Liability, Accident Medical and Accidental Death and Dismemberment insurance. This insurance package is provided to you as part of your membership dues. There is no additional fee.



    All officials currently registered with a member state association, or with an affiliate of the NFHS (if that association registers officials and if that association registers for NFHS insurance benefits)

    State and local officials’ associations who have 100% membership in the NFHS Officials Association.

    Assignors, instructors and rule interpreters who are currently registered with the NFOA are covered under the Liability Policy for claims involving bodily injury and property damage. There is no coverage under the Liability Policy for any other type of claim.




    Insurance coverage applies while the member is performing his/her officiating duties during a regularly scheduled sports or activity competition.

    The sport or activity must be recognized in that state by the member state high school association or by high schools that follow the state association guidelines.

    If the sport is recognized by the state high school association for men or women, the official will be covered for officiating that sport for both men and women.

    Officiating duties include chain crews and attending officiating camps, clinics and meetings.

    Coverage for officials extends, not only to high school activities, but also to college, independent youth, adult and recreational leagues. However, coverage is still limited only to sports recognized by the state high school association.

    Accident medical coverage only for direct travel to and from a covered activity. No general liability coverage.
