ACCIDENT/MEDICAL INSURANCE BENEFIT
With the current economic conditions that face families due to the pandemic and the possibility of health care insurance not available to many families, the Kino Baseball League determined that to assist and to put at ease family concerns if their player got injured and did not have proper coverage would create hardship, the league determined to include accident/medical insurance coverage for registered players.
Included in the player registration fee is the cost associated with accident/medical insurance that the league is providing in 2021.
WHAT DOES THE BENEFIT INCLUDE?
Coverage is “excess” which means that other collectible insurance (if any) must first be used before this plan will pay any benefit. The benefit covers usual and customary expenses incurred within 52 weeks after the date of the accident. The first expense must be incurred within 90 days of the date of the accident.
Physical Therapy & Chiropractic Visits 5 – Visit Maximum/$50 per Visit; Hospitalization – Inpatient & Outpatient – $1,000 Maximum; Surgeon’s Benefits – $2,500 Maximum; Anesthesia and Assistant Surgeon – Maximum 25% of Surgeon’s Benefits; Emergency Room – $500 Maximum; Physicians Visits – $50 Maximum Per Visit.
WHO IS COVERED?
Only registered players.
The benefit covers team practice and games for the 2021 summer season.
WHEN DOES THE COVERAGE BECOME IN EFFECT?
Once a team registers the minimum 12 players, then the coverage will go into effect. Therefore, it is recommended that a team get their players registered as soon as possible so the insurance premium can be made by the league on behalf of the team. The later it takes to assemble a team, the longer it will take to get the insurance coverage effective.
WHAT DOES THE BENEFIT COVER?
The accident benefit covers all team practices and games during the 2021 summer season.
HOW TO SUBMIT A CLAIM:
When a player gets injured at a practice or a game, it is the responsibility of the coach within 24 hours of the accident to notify the league of such an accident, therefore starting the claim process that will include claim forms being forward to the parents of the player. The parents will be required to complete the form and submit the claim, and then from that point the parents and the insurance company will be in communication during the remainder of the claim process until all medical bills have been satisfied. Once the parent submits the claim to the insurance company, the league is no longer involved in the process.
Sadler and Company located out of Columbia, South Carolina has been specializing in sports and recreation insurance coverage since 1957.
