New concussion insurance plan for students

In California, Wells Fargo's Student Insurance Division is offering the Play It Safe Concussion Care plan to provide insurance coverage for baseline testing, retesting and rehabilitation care for student athletes.

Under the plan, student athletes' memory and response functions are tested and recorded at the beginning of a season. Any students suspected of sustaining a concussion retake the test to determine if there have been any changes in response times.
