Storyhunter To Provide Insurance to Every Freelancer They Commission
"This plan, used by Reporters Without Borders, offers up to $1 million to cover medical expenses, even when the injury occurred after an act of war and terrorism. In kidnapping cases, the policy covers the medical rehabilitation needed after journalists are released. In the worst case scenario, it covers the repatriation of the body. The one thing the policy doesn't cover is ransoms. Such policies do exist, but as a U.S. based company, we would not be legally permitted to pay out a ransom to any organization the U.S. government deems a terrorist group. Thus, we did not include it as part of our blanket coverage."
