Your medical cover will be provided by the Sheffield Steelers.
The club retains the services of a doctor and any of your medical needs during your stay in Sheffield will be met. This includes your partner and your children, if you happen to bring your family to the UK with you.
Your work permit gives you, and your partner, access to British health care. For example, there have been several cases of couples flying back home at the end of the season with more people than started the season. A number of babies have been born to members of the squad and all were covered by the National Health Service - free at the point of delivery of care. In addition, prescription medicines in the UK are currently £8.60 - this is approximately
$12 US, $15 Canadian and 10 Euros.
All medicines for under 16's are free.
