Fee Increase for Insurance Certificates

April 18, 2023 | 

SCA Communications

As of May 1, 2023, there will be an increase in fees for insurance certificates.  The new rates for groups will be $75 for non-equestrian insurance certificates and $200 for equestrian certificates.

This change affects requests received on or after May 1. If you’ve already got an insurance request in process, even for an event taking place after May 1, there is no fee increase and no further action is needed.

Certificate Rates as of May 1, 2023
General Liability with Additional Insured$75.00
General Liability, no Additional Insured$0.00
Host Liquor$75.00
Golf Carts$75.00

This price rise is driven by an ongoing increase in insurance costs overall, in addition to a significant increase in the SCA’s equestrian insurance coverage in particular. In comparison to 2019 (the last full year of SCA activities prior to the pandemic), the SCA’s insurance premiums for 2023 increased by 16.9% and the premium for equestrian insurance increased by approximately 275%. The organization was looking at an even higher increase but were able to negotiate a small discount.

The majority of the SCA’s insurance costs are covered by membership income.  SCA Inc. uses this income to subsidize the cost on individual certificates at a current rate of 62% for event certificates and 69% for equestrian certificates. 

Insurance certificates can be requested by emailing [email protected]. Please note we are in the process of updating and digitizing the insurance certificate ordering process.
