Motorcycling Australia (MA) has introduced a new ‰Û÷Crew Licence‰Ûª as an optional licence that offers Personal Accident (PA) Insurance for any crew member supporting competitors in or around MA Permitted competition events.
This license will be an expansion and renaming of the current ‰Û÷Mechanic License‰Ûª available on Ridernet and set up in the Manual of Motorcycle Sport (MoMs).
This new Crew Licence will be eligible for crew members, friends or family members supporting competitors in or around events and offers PA coverage that will see them receive the same benefits as MA Licensed riders. Licence holders will be reimbursed for new-medicare medical expenses such as chiropractic, physiotherapy, occupational therapy, pharmacy, dental & osteopathy for up to a maximum of $5,000, net of any private health insurance entitlements, and incurred within 52 weeks of the date of injury.
The Crew License also offers piece of mind for family members reimbursing licence holders up to $125 a night accomodation, if an licence holder is hospitalised more than 250km from home and cannot be moved to a hospital closer to home.
The benefits don‰Ûªt stop on the track with access to exclusive MA discounts and member benefits such as discount codes for tickets, sponsor discounts, MA Newsletter and early bird opportunities.
MA Chief Executive Officer Peter Doyle welcomes the new licence; ‰ÛÏThis is great for our members, providing exclusive benefits and discounts alongside peace of mind at a race meeting. It‰Ûªs all about providing crew members an option to be covered by insurance at an affordable cost.‰Û
