    Okay so I realize their are a million places to get medical insurance for trips to the US. Bcaa, Kanetix, etc. My question is do these normal plans cover for action sports? IE tracksdays, race school? :confused:


    Thanks, Cory

    normally no, but BCAA has a very reasonably priced "Speed Competition" package that will cover you while racing in the US provided that racing is not your primary source of income.

    I have 2 options on mine. Participation in a speed contest and professional sports. The first for the track, and the second in case you win money doing it.

    Hey thanks for the help. I went with BCAA. Basic is 15$ and competition coverage was another 15$. Total was $30.16 for one day.

    make damn sure you have participation in a speed contest! that's the main one.

    Also, you may want to look at helicopter lift insurance. Many racers in Seattle and south carry it. I think it's about 40 bucks a year.

    BCAA Tripguard plan 2, unless things have changed. I used to get it every race weekend and they covered anything, including racing for money. I now have different insurance so I haven't needed to buy it for a few years.

    it covers you for treatment in our hospitals and clinics, but it does not cover you for getting there (ambulance, airlift, etc)
