Insurance for Professional Athletes
Global Albatross specialises in the health insurance needs of professional athletes and their families, ensuring cover that responds to the unique and diverse pressures on sporting professionals, without limitations as to the type of sport or the changing location of athletes.
At Global Albatross we understand a worldwide medical policy is only as good as the benefits that it delivers when its needed, and therefore we work with athletes to determine which plan is the most suitable depending on situation, needs and budget.
All policies cover athletes and their family members no matter the competition location or choice of residence.

One of Global Albatross’ best service features is advocating for our clients 24/7. We consistently turn claims decisions around through applying our intricate knowledge of policies, their inner workings and the fine print. We not only advocate during claim time, but also hold insurers to account over the life of the policy for their underwriting decisions, policy benefits and the level of customer service delivered, ensuring quality decisions and outcomes throughout.
Whether it be managing the refund of prepaid treatment expenses or liaising with the insurer during a medical emergency, we make certain all entitlements available under the policy are delivered. Global Albatross is adept at managing the flow of information between the insurer, medical facility and client, allowing you to focus on any medical situation at hand, rather than dealing with the insurer and financial aspects associated with receiving treatment.
