NOHO SENIOR ARTS COLONY APARTMENTS TO HOLD FREE HEALTH CARE REFORM WORKSHOP TO HELP ARTISTS GET COVERED
As health care continues to change at the federal level, many professional artists and actors throughout Los Angeles are seeking answers about how current health care reform will affect their ability to obtain affordable medical coverage. On Tuesday, December 3 at 4:30 p.m., EngAGE, a non-profit organization providing life-enhancing programs to active-aging apartment communities, will partner with the Actors Fund and Covered California to present an information workshop on the new health care provisions for actors, artists and the general public to be held at the NoHo Senior Arts Colony, an arts-focused apartment community for adults age 62+.
“Getting health insurance and finding quality medical care is a constant concern for professionals in the acting and arts community,” says Joanne Webb, Director of the Actors Fund Work Program, “As health care changes in our country, many people are left with so many unanswered questions and confusion. This is especially true for those who are uninsured or not covered by an employer, union or government health plan.”
Webb notes that, through this new workshop, the Actors Fund, EngAGE and Covered California will be able to bring the visual and performing arts community together to educate and provide pertinent information about current health care options.
“This free workshop is open to the public and will provide guests with a rare opportunity to obtain a deeper understanding about Covered California options and requirements,” explains Webb.
Covered California representatives will provide guests with important information relating to freelance and self-employed individuals, giving attendees a better understanding of how to secure affordable health insurance with the help of tax credits and federal subsidies.
The mission of the Covered California organization is to increase the number of Californians with health insurance, improve the quality of health care for all Californians, and reduce health care coverage costs. For more information about Covered California visit www.coveredca.com.
