Insurance Plans for Crazy European Soccer Fans

Soccer_playerI absolutely love this post from Joe Paduda at Managed Care Matters on how Dutch insurance companies are dealing with the massive amount of work about to be missed because of the Netherlands participation in this summer's World Cup.

Joe writes:

In one of the more creative approaches to managing employee disability expense, an insurance company in Holland is issuing policies to employers who may suffer from significant increases in employee disability during the upcoming Soccer (sorry, Football) World Cup.

Insurance policies only pick up the payments after two weeks of absence, but the new policy, underwritted by SEZ, will cover absences the day of and the day after Dutch soccer matches.

And to think that we can't even get people in this country to care one lick about soccer. 

Perhaps we could have our insurance companies come up with something similar for March Madness or just the entire NFL season.
