Getting and Keeping Health Insurance

Sponsored by The Actors Fund
Every Thursday from 12:30 - 1:30 pm
The Actors Fund - 729 Seventh Avenue, 10th Floor
Free - No registration necessary

The Health Insurance Resource Center at The Actors Fund of America hosts a weekly workshop on "Getting and Keeping Health Insurance." The program is held every Thursday from 12:30 - 1:30 pm at The Actors Fund, 729 Seventh Avenue, New York. Led by Jim Brown, Director of Health Services, and Renata Marinaro, Manager of Health Education and Outreach, the workshop features information on obtaining and keeping health insurance as well as finding free and income-based health care for those who are uninsured. The workshops are open to all members of the performing arts and entertainment community.

In the workshops Jim and Renata explain the coverage and relative costs of insurance available through private insurers, various associations and group health plans, and income-based plans such as the state-subsidized Healthy New York and Family Health Plus insurance programs. Information is also available on COBRA and the New York COBRA subsidy, available to those in the entertainment industry. Workshop attendees have the opportunity to ask specific questions and get information on their health insurance options.

Getting health insurance or finding quality medical care is a constant concern for anyone who is uninsured or who isn't covered by an employer, union or government health plan. With a constantly shifting landscape of health care options, finding and choosing the right insurance coverage can be a challenge. The Thursday workshop demystifies the process of finding the right health care at the right price.

There is no reservation or pre-registration required. For more information, call The Actors Fund at 212.221.7301 ext. 265.
