Join NYFA and The Actors Fund for a Free Workshop
Struggling to make ends meet and unable to afford health insurance? Paying a tax penalty for being uninsured last year? Wondering if you qualify for Medicaid? Think you missed your chance to enroll in low-cost or free health insurance? Maybe not!
Come to EVERY ARTIST INSURED! This free workshop will provide you with clear guidance on what all your insurance options are, and answer all your burning questions! Open to anyone in visual, literary, or performing arts and entertainment.
Questions answered include:
Who can still enroll in insurance after open enrollment?
Am I eligible for free insurance?
Am I eligible for a subsidy to pay for insurance?
I don’t understand my coverage – can you help?
How do I decide what plan is right for me?
How much will it cost?
Where can I go to apply?
