Accident Insurance a Hit!

Rugby Accident Insurance a Hit With Members!

Ben Outland of the Denton Rugby Football Club in north Texas is a man of action.  Outland is in the insurance business himself and knew a good deal when he saw one, that's why he signed his entire club up for the Rugby Accident Insurance offered by USA Rugby in conjunction with Zurich North America.


Denton RFC has a wide age-range, some players are college-age and some are in their mid 30s.  With that range, you have different financial situations and needs.  Outland insured all of the players registered with Denton for $200.


"It was a no-brainer," Outland told USA Rugby. "It took me less than five minutes to sign up."


Outland spent 5 minutes and $200 and gave his entire club phenomenal coverage, to the tune of $100,000 per injury.  It's almost too good to be true, but believe it because it is true. 


Outland jumped on this offer not only to keep his team covered, but to bring in players who couldn't play because of financial circumstances. 


"Since the economy tanked, a lot of our players lost healthcare and they couldn't play because they didn't have quality plans."

Some Denton players lost healthcare or had policies with massive deductibles and not great coverage.  That, among other reasons, is why USA Rugby has been working hard to deliver affordable and quality coverage to its members.


The new Rugby Accident Insurance is as cheap as $200 per club with a $1000 "disappearing deductible" which means if you have primary coverage, the Rugby Accident Policy may pay your deductible and out-of-pocket expenses.


"The coverage is great.  It covers the needs of the players with or without primary healthcare coverage," Outland said.  "One great feature is that it allows players to play comfortably all year."


Denton RFC hosts an annual sevens tournament the weekend before Memorial Day, so players can enjoy rugby and the competition, and not worry about what happens if they get injured.  Check out the Denton RFC at
