View Full Version : I need medical insurance for racing.

07-07-2003, 11:52 AM
Hello all,

I think there is a very good chance that my medical coverage through work will be gone before Hallett.

Does anyone know of any policies available for specific activities only (racing)? What I imagine is an on-track only policy which only covers racing injuries.

I remember Tony Rodio saying something about this a while back, but I cannot remember the details.

Any ideas are appreciated - I really don't want to miss Hallett.

Not sure if they have insurance just for racing, but I am sure that you can find something there.

Jesse, try Unicare at 1-877-UNICARE or at www.unicare.com, (http://www.unicare.com,) they have a variety of coverages and are fairly affordable.

Earlier this year, I switched from full-time to part-time at the hospital where I work. When I went looking for health insurance, I was astonished at how many companies had a specific exclusionary statement regarding motorcycles. They all stated something to the effect that if you were injured racing any sort of motorcycle, you would not be covered and they would not pay.
I had not anticipated this when I went part-time, which pays a little better, but without benefits. At any rate, Unicare was the only company out of 5 that did not have an exclusionary statement about motorcycle racing. I'm 27, single, good health, and I pay $131 per month. Hope I could help. Noah

Good point about racing carveout, Noah, keep in mind that this also applies to most life insurance policies so if you had your policy before you started racing (like me) you may not want to let it lapse as it would be more difficult to get approved.
