The Critical Care Benefit Program will cover up to $50,000 (“Annual Maximum”) per Trust fiscal year (March 1 – February 28) (“Plan Year”) for medically necessary Covered Services to treat Covered Conditions (as defined in FAQ#2 below), subject to the exclusions described in FAQ #16. Eligible former players may receive coverage for Covered Services up to the Annual Maximum each Plan Year beginning on March 1, 2022. Any amounts due and owing above the Annual Maximum will be the responsibility of the eligible former player.
The Trust's Critical Care Benefit Program assists eligible former players with coverage for select emergency medical and critical illness expenses. The cost of treating an urgent medical condition independent of health insurance can cause significant financial strain. With the support of the Critical Care Benefit Program, uninsured players afflicted with a dire medical concern can prioritize their care while mitigating economic stress.
