Attention Horsemen

2020 ACCIDENT INSURANCE REQUIREMENTS

 

It is this Association’s understanding that effective January 31, 2020, Alberta Employers can once again carry Private Accident/Disability Insurance in lieu of WCB coverage.  The HBPA approached its previous Insurance Provider and obtained a quotation with respect to the cost associated with coverage.  In the end, the cost would have put additional financial strain on the Association, thus for 2020 there will be no change with the procedures that have been in place since 2017.

 

Trainers will once again be required to provide Insurance coverage for their employees through WCB. To help defray a portion of your Premium cost, the HBPA will once again rebate Trainers in good standing with WCB, $5/start for starts made during the 2020 Century Mile and Downs race meets. It will be necessary to obtain a WCB clearance Letter at the end of the Downs meet and forward it to the Horsemen’s Bookkeeper to obtain the appropriate rebate.  Assistance with this can be obtained from Theresa Sealy: (403-540-8707) or tsealy@oldscollege.com .

 

All other inquires with respect to this matter should be addressed to HBPA Manager: Allen Goodsell – 403-715-1689 or goodsellracing@gmail.com .
