The Actors Fund’s Artists Health Insurance Resource Center (AHIRC) will offer a free health care seminar to visual and performing artists and entertainment professionals at the Ashé Cultural Arts Center (located at 1712 Oretha Castle Haley Boulevard in New Orleans) on November 2 from 6 to 8pm.
The seminar, co-sponsored by Sweet Home New Orleans and the Louisiana Cultural Economy Foundation, will address how our nation’s artists can benefit from recent health care reform. The seminar will show attendees how to evaluate their current coverage, and whether there’s a better plan or program available. Seminar topics will include understanding health care reform; applying for government programs; finding affordable health insurance and health care; getting insured despite a pre-existing condition; and lowering the cost of medications. The seminar will be followed by a Q&A and individual consultations.
The event will mark the next stop on AHIRC’s “Every Artist Insured Tour,” encompassing dozens of cities across the country. To register, call the Ashé Cultural Arts Center at 504-569-9070, or visit ahirc.org/everyartistinsuredtour for more information.
