The Trinidad & Tobago Red Force has expressed gratitude to the West Indies Players’ Association and Cricket West Indies for the health insurance plan secured by the two entities.
The plan, which covers players for up to US$4 Million per annum, includes coverage for situations involving the Emergency Room, Intensive Care Unit, Air & Ground Ambulance, and all In-patient and Out-patient procedures; all covered 100%.
CEO of Excel Insurance Brokers, Kinshasa Minott on Wednesday gave the Red Force players an overview of the plan’s conditions and benefits.
He said “once notified of an emergency, VUMI will establish direct payment, anywhere in the world, as long as the provider is willing.”
WIPA President Wavell Hinds encouraged the players to add their dependents.
Young, promising Red Force batsman, Jeremy Solozano said, “it was a very good presentation, and as cricketers, we feel more secure now”.
Similarly, veteran Red Force leg-spinner Imran Khan told WIPA, “It’s a great initiative and we have waited very long for such a milestone to arrive. Kudos to those who have thought about it and concreted it in this era, I am content to have gained such a benefit. I’m sure players are happy.”
