Who is the insurance policy underwritten by?

The policy is underwritten by a major insurance company, specializing in sports.  Since the ABUA shops around for the best coverage for its members, insurance carriers may change from year-to-year.  A copy of the current policy will be provided at any time for review for all members and perspective members inquiring.  To obtain a copy of the current policy, please email the ABUA office at JLIB_HTML_CLOAKING .

If I have to go to the hospital for dehydration, am I covered?

The insurance covers medical for accidents during the sporting event.  Dehydration is a preventable condition, and is NOT covered by the insurance program since it is not an accident.  Please be vigilant and make sure to hydrate as frequently as needed during games, especially on hot/humid days/nights.
