Wells Fargo & Company’s (NYSE: WFC) Student Insurance Division and ImPACT Applications have joined forces to launch Play It Safe Concussion Care SM - a new concussion management treatment and services solution for youth athletes nationwide. Play It Safe Concussion Care SM provides concussion medical expense benefits for athletes who sustain a covered head injury. An innovative approach to concussion management, Play It Safe Concussion Care SM provides education, neurocognitive testing, access to medical professionals who are credentialed ImPACT (Immediate Post-concussion Assessment and Cognitive Testing) consultants, and excess insurance coverage to protect the financial well-being of athletes and their families.
“Wells Fargo is thrilled to announce our exclusive association with ImPACT for the Play It Safe Concussion Care program,” said John Breckenridge, senior vice president of Wells Fargo Insurance Services. “We are connected in our mission to protect youth athletes. The quality and reliability of the ImPACT test along with their credentialed ImPACT consultants and training programs help ensure a safe return-to-play for young athletes.”
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates between 1.6 and 3.8 million sports and recreation related concussions occur in the United States each year. Ten percent of all college players and twenty percent of all high school players sustain concussions in any given season, with high school athletes three times more likely to sustain a second concussion.
Micky Collins, PhD. Director of the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center’s Center for Sports Medicine Concussion Program said, “We are pleased to work with Wells Fargo in initiating this comprehensive concussion care program. The program will help all children to receive exemplary, evidence-based care incorporating all elements of an appropriate concussion management program. These elements include concussion education, baseline neurocognitive testing, and, most importantly, post-injury treatment by a clinician who has been trained extensively in implementing the latest advances in concussion science and education. We are proud to be a part of this as many children will benefit from this program.”
