PPE INSTRUCTIONS FOR PROSPECTIVE STUDENT-ATHLETES AT USM

Get a jump on these medical eligibility requirements for intercollegiate athletic participation at USM! We look forward to see you all in the Fall of 2020. 

Beginning May 15, 2020 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.  

Gather the following information together prior to completing Privit Profile:

  1. Your Immunization Shot Records. (Click on the following link for Immunization Requirements Information
  2. Your Health Insurance Enrollment Card (both sides of card must be uploaded to Privit Profile)
  3. Your USM MaineStreet ID # (7 digits)
  4. You MUST use your @maine.edu email address as your email address in Privit profile!

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. IT MUST BE DONE BY MEDICAL PERSONNEL ON CAMPUS. 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 3, 2020 for all student-athletes and all intercollegiate teams

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). Your primary health insurance will be billed for this PPE – Do not have a physical by your own PCP because your health insurance probably will not pay for a second one in the same calendar year.

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 medical history of bodily systems and a blood pressure check, not an annual physical.

E) Complete the Privit Profile (step 2), prior to the PPE at UHCS. Do this before the August 3, 2020 deadline (for all sports and all student-athletes)

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

 2020 USM Student-Athlete Pre-Participation Physical (PPE) Schedule

PLEASE ARRIVE 15 MINUTES PRIOR TO THE SCHEDULED CHECK-IN TIME FOR YOUR PPE APPOINTMENT LISTED BELOW

You must bring your insurance card to the health center on the day of your PPE. You will not be allowed to receive a physical without the insurance card in hand, no exceptions. 

Be aware that the check-in process will go smoothly and efficiently if all of your required documents have been completed in advance of the PPE date on Privit Profile.  If all documentation is not completed in advance of the PPE date you will have to contact Health Services at a later date to be rescheduled for an individual PPE appointment.  This process will most certainly delay your participation clearance status for your chosen sport. You must bring your insurance card to the health center on the day of your PPE.
