Amateur Sports

Sports are great for teaching teamwork and an accident can be a disruption. That's why we offer GrouProtectorSM group accident medical
insurance - to give you peace of mind and help you keep the focus on the field.

Our policy provides medical expense benefits for a player, coach or volunteer who is accidentally injured during a league or team activity.
This means if the insured has medical expenses due to an accident, we will pay all covered expenses (less the deductible). It's a great way to safeguard your insured group from medical costs associated with an accidental injury or death that occurs during a sponsored group activity.
