PPE INSTRUCTIONS FOR PROSPECTIVE STUDENT-ATHLETES AT USM

Get a jump on these medical eligibility requirements for intercollegiate athletic participation at USM!!

On June 15, 2017 there will be a link posted on the Southern Maine Huskies website (southernmainehuskies.com) for you to get Pre-participation Physical Evaluation (PPE) instructions for intercollegiate athletics participation at USM.  The entire process may take up to an hour to complete and it is all on-line.

Important information that you need to know and share with your folks at home 

A) THE PPE IS REQUIRED FOR ALL STUDENT-ATHLETES PRIOR TO PARTICIPATION IN INTERCOLLEGIATE ATHLETICS. NO EXCEPTIONS

B) DEADLINES FOR COMPLETING PRIVIT PROFILE (a web-based electronic health history and repository for medical release, consent and waiver form) ARE: 

  • August 4, 2017 for all fall sports participants
  • August 25, 2017 for all winter and spring sports participants

C) All first year/first-time participants as a student-athlete at USM must have an "initial" comprehensive pre-participation physical evaluation (PPE) completed at USM Health and Counseling Services (UHCS). PPE –*NOTE* - If you have a physical by your own PCP, your health insurance may not pay for a second one in the same calendar year, which will result in you being billed for this required PPE. 

D) All "returning" student-athletes (any student-athlete who has had a previous "initial" PPE) must have a medical history update and blood pressure screening at UHCS prior to participation in intercollegiate athletics each year.  Your primary insurance will only be billed for a blood pressure check, not an annual physical 

E) Complete the Privit Profile, prior to the PPE at UHCS. Do this before your deadline (August 4 (fall sports), August 25 (winter & spring sports) 

F) You must have adequate health insurance coverage that includes coverage for injuries/illness incurred while participating in intercollegiate athletics.  Upload both sides of your health insurance card under "Manage Documents" in Privit Profile.
