Despite the Affordable Care Act (ACA), health insurance is still a work in progress for artists, musicians, writers, and performers. For many artists and creative professionals trying to survive by working the "gig economy", health insurance is difficult if not impossible to afford and thus many go without.
NEWAA is looking into addressing this basic needs gap by exploring the possibility of offering a group/association health plan for our members seeking an alternative to plans available via the ACA. We are encouraged by our initial conversations with regional healthcare experts.
At this point, we are not certain if a group plan outside of the ACA/Healthcare.gov would be any better or more affordable than individual health insurance people could get on their own. Certainly, more education and better communication ought to happen in regard to options that already exist.
Perhaps providing an easy to understand explanation to those we serve as to navigating the system would be a good starting point. We could then look into possibly creating new options where it makes sense. We will keep you all posted as things progress!
