Cheer Manitoba has a comprehensive Accident and Liability Insurance Program for all athletes, coaches, judges, administrators and volunteers who are registered members of our programs. If you are injured while participating in a Cheer Manitoba program, please review the following information on our insurance policies.
The Sport Accident Policy provides coverage to current members of Cheer Manitoba when there is a bodily injury resulting directly from a single sports accident. The Sport Accident Insurance Policy does not include coverage for any injury that is determined to have been from the resulting over-use, progressive or pre-existing conditions.
This insurance coverage is an excess payer policy. Expenses eligible under any other health care plan(s) must be submitted to that plan(s) first.
This policy will pay only the amount of expenses that are not eligible with any other insurer held by the member.
PLEASE NOTE: The rates within the Sport Accident Policy for all therapy will be $50.00 per visit with a maximum of $2,000.00 per accident over a 52-week period from the date of the accident. This includes physiotherapy, athletic therapy, chiropractor, massage therapy and osteopath. There is also a $100 deductible on therapy and dental claims.
An accident is a single happening due to external, violent, sudden, fortuitous causes beyond the Insured’s control.
An injury is a bodily injury suffered by a member caused directly by a single sport accident as described above, independent of any sickness or other causes.
