National Insurance Program

MSBL/MABL National offers two alternate policies, a general liability policy without medical coverage for $115 per team and liability/comprehensive medical policy. Each league will have the 2 million-dollar liability policy with the $115 per team policy, which includes Participant Legal Liability Coverage.  Each player will be covered medically during local league play and during regional and national tournaments for up to $25,000 provided the league has purchased the combined liability and medical policy.  There is no additional charge to add co-insureds or to add additional fields for coverage once the season starts for either policy.  The combined liability/medical policy remains the same at $315 per team.
