Accident and Sickness Coverage for National High-Adventure Bases
The Council Accident and Sickness Insurance renewal with Health Special Risk Inc. (HSR) was completed January 1, 2014. Included in the Description of Coverage, under Covered Activities, it now states that effective January 1, 2014, the policy does not provide benefits for attendance or participation at the national high-adventure bases. The coverage for attending or participating in events at the national high-adventure bases is provided by the National Events Accident and Sickness Insurance policy.
This specification is not new; it was added to clarify the existing coverage. Any claims filed as a result of an injury or illness at a national high-adventure base have always been covered by the National Events policy. These claims are not reported as losses to the local council.
