DWF Claims have been appointed as the new claims administrators for the GAA Injury Benefit Fund . The GAA Injury Scheme has limitations and is designed to provide ‘additional’ cover to GAA players own insurance plan therefore we strongly recommend that all our Senior (particulary any players that are self employed) & Minor players read the policy carefully and if they feel the scheme does not provide sufficent cover for their needs that they purchase their own Private Health Insurance policy.
Please be aware of your entitlements and responsibilities. All players/mentors should take the time to read the full document (see link at bottom of page) – The onus is on the player to inform and log details of his injury with the Club Secretary within 60 days from the date of the injury. Failure to log the injury will result in the claim not being processed and therefore invalid and the club does not accept any responsibility for medical costs incurred.
