Peace of Mind

Private Health Insurance

We are working with Nugent Sante to ensure all jockeys receive the best advice and protection package.

Nugent Sante can recommend a range of personal health insurance options that will cover jockeys when racing including private health insurance. PJA members may also be eligible for a discount on some of these policies to protect their lifestyle and income.

To find out more information or to request a quote, please call Stephen or Daniel at Nugent Sante on 01772 585085.

IJF Contributions Towards Private Healthcare Insurance

Licensed PJA members, who have had up to 350 rides the previous season, are eligible to claim the following contributions from the IJF towards the cost of their private healthcare insurance by sending a copy of their healthcare certificate to the IJF Head Office in Newmarket:

Grade 1£650
Grade 2£600
Grade 3£500
Grade 4£450
Grade 5£400
Grade 6£350

Apprentice and Conditional Jockeys contributions

  • Year 1 – 100% of premium
  • Year 2 – 50% or £650 if higher

If jockeys already have their own health insurance they should check their policy carefully to ensure they are covered for racing as not all health insurance providers cover professional sportspeople.
