Spot covers up to $25,000 of medical expenses with zero deductible, whenever you ride your bike anywhere in the US. Your NEMBA on-the-bike coverage protects you while you mountain bike (any discipline), road bike, gravel bike, BMX bike, and e-bike (up to 750 watts). You're also covered anytime you are building or maintaining bike trails. Your plan works whether you have health insurance or not and with any existing insurance plans you may have. Heads up! The only time you aren' t covered on a bike, is when participating in non-NEMBA sanctioned races. FONDOs are covered.
If you have a crash, focus on your injury first and get the treatment you need. Go to any licensed physician, hospital, ER, or urgent care clinic that is convenient to you. Whatever your physician recommends as treatment should be covered, whether that’s diagnostic tests, scans, surgery, specialist visits, prescriptions, procedures, hospital stays, ambulance or air ambulance rides, physical therapy, and more.
Filing a claim with Spot is simple, really. It’s just a matter of taking pictures of your bill(s), explaining how you got injured, and providing a few other details. Once you file a claim, you will be given a personal claims representative who will work with you to determine the best plan for your medical and financial situation.
Coverage is for enrolled members of New England Mountain Bike Association's voluntary annual program whenever you’re on the bike (including e-bikes up to 750 watts) and mountain bike trail building and maintenance in the United States. Sanctioned races by other organizations are NOT covered under this plan. Events sponsored and supervised by New England Mountain Bike Association are included in your coverage.
New England Mountain Bike Association is the policyholder and coverage is underwritten and claims are serviced byMutual of Omaha Insurance Group. Coverage is subject to the terms conditions and exclusions of the policy. Review the policy benefit summary here.

Spot covers costs from your doctor-recommended treatment plan up to $25,000 for any covered physical injury as long as its carried out by a licensed physician. Your treatment plan could include diagnostic scans, hospital stays, ER visits, surgeries, and emergency transportation. Basically, anything your licensed physician recommends that you need to recover from your accident. Unfortunately, your spiritual healer’s plan is on you.
No, Spot is not health insurance. Spot provides coverage for reimbursement of medical bills incurred for injuries stemming from accidents. As much as we’d like to help you with your stomach flu (drink plenty of fluids!), that's just not our thing. General illness, pre-existing conditions, and chronic sickness are not included in your policy coverage.
Each accident you have is eligible for reimbursement up to $25,000. This means if you need stitches and an MRI after a bike crash one day, you’re covered for up to $25,000 for that. If you have another crash the next week, you’re covered for up to $25,000 for that as well. We really hope that never happens to you but we’ve got your back regardless, even if it’s broken.
We got your back whenever you're on a bike and while building and maintaining mountain bike trails for 1 year from your sign-up date anywhere in the US– the only time your coverage does not apply when riding, is when participating in a sanctioned race. We're working to offer add on racing coverage soon, so stay tuned!
