Sports+ is available to individual sports players or bought on a team basis, direct from General and Medical.
This unique new package is available to many types of sports players and clubs whether amateur or professional including rugby, football, cricket, golf, rowing, athletic clubs, horse riding related clubs, or many other sports.
With General & Medical Healthcare both clubs and individual players can be certain that they will be able to access the highest quality treatment as soon as their doctor says it is required and it can be arranged.
Upon joining General & Medical Sports+ members will be assigned a personal Client Relations Co-ordinator and will be informed of their name.
With Sports+ cover treatment for conditions and sport related injuries can be arranged quickly to suit you at the private hospital of your choice.
Sports+ cover may be taken out on an individual basis or if a club who would like to cover all their players the insurer offers Sports+ Club Cover and related Opt-In service for club supporters, club officials and families of players.
Premium is based on age. There is a wide range of inpatient and outpatient covers.
Generally professional sports clubs employ their own physiotherapists, consequently there is no need to insure the cost of their treatment for the club players, so the standard sports+ cover excludes therapies cover. For clubs that do not employ their own Therapist there is an option to include Therapies cover and an option to buy back in the Therapies benefit on a risk share basis of 50 / 50. Risk share means that where there is a limit shown for a benefit, a maximum of the percentage shown can be claimed of that benefit. For example where 50 / 50 is shown and there is a benefit limit of £500, the client may claim 50% of the treatment costs, so their maximum reimbursement per annum can be only up to £250.
