If you’re a Team USA athlete looking for accessible medical care at little or no cost, check out the U.S. Olympic Committee’s National Medical Network and take advantage of services ranging from orthopedic care to neurosurgery.
The NMN provides medical care to athletes through partnerships with top-tier medical providers across the country. Services are available to athletes who are enrolled in or eligible for the Elite Athlete Health Insurance Program and athletes who sustain injuries during training and/or USOC- sponsored/sanctioned competitions at an Olympic Training Center.
The medical program is funded through value–in-kind (VIK) agreements between the USOC and medical providers. Referred athletes will receive care with any medical provider in the NMN; services are then billed against the USOC VIK pool. Providers currently are available in Colorado, California and New York. The USOC is striving to further develop and expand its national network to meet athletes’ needs.
