We want to see as many members refereeing as often as possible!
In order to achieve that we have extended the Physio offering to include injuries in addition to accidents.
Where you suffer an accident or injury whilst refereeing, travelling to and from a game or whilst on an official Referees’ Association event where appropriate you are entitled to a maximum of £45 per session for a total of four sessions.
Although most common injuries will clear with rest over a period of time it is essential you receive the right advice from your usual medical practitioner or our triage team who will be happy to assist you.
Failure to follow this advice both in terms of rest and exercises specific to the injury can delay the healing process or cause additional injuries.
We will only pay for a maximum of £180 in total for any one Insured Person during the Period of Insurance and confirmation from a medical practitioner will be required to access the service of treatment.
We will not pay for any physiotherapy occurring after the Insured Person has either (a) returned to work or (b) being advised by a doctor that “You may be fit for work”.
