    The ISA Rocky Mountain Chapter tree climbing championship is covered under the International Society of Arboriculture and as such is identified below as an ISA Event.

    The International Society of Arboriculture (ISA) strongly advises all ISA Event participants to have comprehensive, personal health (medical) insurance throughout their participation in ISA Events, including the [Rocky Mountain Chapter] Tree Climbing Championship and the ISA Certified Tree Worker examination.  ISA also strongly recommends that ISA Event participants have disability insurance coverage.  Participants should confirm that their insurance plan(s) covers medical expenses in the event of an injury during an ISA Event, including certain events that are conducted outside of the participant’s home country. 

    Participants should have their personal health (medical) insurance information, including the insurance provider and policy number, readily available during the ISA Event in case of emergency.  Participants should also provide that insurance information to the emergency contact they list below.

    As stated in the required ISA Event Participant Agreement and Release that all participants must accept, ISA currently maintains a supplemental medical insurance policy (the ISA Climbers Event Policy) on behalf of participants in ISA Events conducted in the United States and Canada.  The ISA Climbers Event Policy is a supplemental and secondary insurance plan, and is not intended to replace the personal health and disability insurance policies of an ISA Event participant. 

    In summary, the ISA Climbers Event Policy includes the following benefits and limitations:  

    • The policy is applicable only to ISA Events conducted in the United States and Canada.

    • The policy may pay up to $50,000 in covered medical costs not paid by the ISA Event participant’s primary health insurance plans.

    • The policy may not pay for co-pays, deductibles, and other costs required by the participant’s primary health insurance policy.

    • The participant must satisfy all requirements of the policy and the insurance company that issues the ISA Climber Event Policy.

     

    ISA Event participants may contact ISA at [email protected] for additional information regarding the ISA Climbers Event Policy.

    The ISA Rocky Mountain Chapter tree climbing championship is covered under the International Society of Arboriculture and as such is identified as an ISA Event.

    6. Insurance: I understand that ISA strongly advises all ISA Event participants to maintain personal health insurance throughout their participation in any ISA Event.  ISA has also advised that it currently maintains a supplemental medical insurance policy on behalf of participants in ISA Events conducted in the United States and Canada.  This supplemental medical insurance policy may provide a benefit up to $50,000 (USD) for medical costs associated with an injury sustained during participation in an ISA Event.  I further understand and agree that this medical insurance policy is: (a) applicable only to ISA Events that occur in the United States and Canada; (b) conditioned on my compliance with, and satisfaction of, the terms and conditions of all Agreements between ISA and the insurance carrier, and the insurance policy; (c) supplemental and secondary to my own personal health insurance; and, (d) limited only to eligible costs in excess of my personal insurance benefits, and may not apply to co-pays, deductibles, and other insurance costs.  I further understand and agree that ISA does not covenant, agree, or promise to continue to provide the supplemental medical insurance policy, and it may cancel such policy at any time.
