It can vary. The team and/or league organization may offer some format of group health coverage for all its players or they may secure individual health plans. Since professional athletes endure a higher level of physical strain than the average person due to the constant training, practice, games, and other physical activities, they may require supplemental coverage programs in addition to your common type of health plans such as injury specific plans.
If you’re looking for help with your coverage, it’s best to consult with a health insurance agent who has a strong background in health programs specifically geared towards health insurance plans.
