PSAL Football Clinic

Hospital for Special Surgery is pleased to announce that the PSAL Football Clinic is back!


Ever wonder what goes into training like a New York Giant? The medical team at Hospital for Special Surgery demonstrates what they do for the New York Giants and with the NY Public School Athletic League football players.

Hospital for Special Surgery (HSS) has partnered with the Public Schools Athletic League (PSAL) to provide game-day medical coverage to selected teams and access to follow-up care in the event that game-related athletic injuries occur for all PSAL football teams.

HSS is offering a weekly Monday clinic for the exclusive use of PSAL JV and varsity football athletes.

If your player is injured on game day, have them treated by our orthopedic specialists within 48 hours.

Instructions:

Coaches, contact us to make an appointment by either:

  • Calling our Clinic Hotline on gameday after an injury occurs, OR
  • Call our clinic contact Julie Seamon at 646-797-8340 on Monday from 9:00am – 12:00pm to make same-day clinic appointment, OR
  • unfortunately, walk-ins are not available. However, if you call the hotline by 10 am on the day of the clinic, we would be happy to see your athlete.

The following forms must be completed in order for the athlete to be treated at PSAL Clinic:

  • Notification of Injury (pdf)
    Completed form must be signed by parent and coach / school, who is then responsible for sending directly to PSAL’s secondary insurer (Maksin). This form ensures that HSS is reimbursed by Maksin.
  • HSS General Consent Form (pdf)
    This form needs to be signed by the parent / legal guardian.
    If parent / legal guardian is not accompanying athlete to clinic, and HSS does not have the signed consent form, then the athlete cannot be treated
  • HSS Registration Form (pdf)
    This form may be completed upon arrival at the PSAL Clinic, but you may wish to begin completing in advance to ensure that you have all the necessary information with you.
  • If the parent / legal guardian accompanies the athlete, they must bring a legal form of identification (e.g., driver’s license, passport, etc.) to the appointment.

A Note on Insurance

The Public Schools Athletic League and Hospital for Special Surgery are committed to ensuring that PSAL athletes who sustain a game-related injury are able to receive affordable medical treatment. If you are a PSAL athlete, you are able to come to HSS for treatment and will not be responsible for payment of bills resulting from the treatment of game-related injury. The services provided by HSS in the treatment of game-related injury may be covered by employer-based commercial health insurance plans. However, if for any reason your insurance company denies coverage, or if you have health insurance coverage through Medicaid or no health insurance coverage, the PSAL and HSS have partnered with Maksin – a secondary insurance provider – to cover the cost of medical treatment for game-related injury for PSAL athletes.

If you have any questions regarding insurance or treatment coverage, please contact:
