WWE AMENDS MEDICAL INSURANCE POLICY FOR TALENTS, REFUSAL COULD LEAD TO TALENTS SITTING HOME

WWE informed contracted talents yesterday that as of 2/21/16, they will begin conducting random checks with insurance providers to make sure that information talents have provided WWE regarding their personal medical insurance is correct, up to date and in order.

WWE began requiring all of of their signed talents to personally purchase and maintain medical insurance for themselves in May 2011. WWE covers the costs of all in-ring related medical issues and injuries, including surgeries and physical therapy.

In the announcement to talents, WWE, noting that the health of their talents is a priority, told them that should the company learn they do not have their medical insurance in order, talents will be told they need to immediately rectify that situation.

If they do not, WWE stated that the talents could "not be available" to be used by the company. So, WWE in effect has warned talents they will be benched and not used if their medical insurance is not in order.

WWE likely informed talents yesterday so they have 60 days to get their medical insurance in order, if they were not in order already.
