GET YOUR HEALTHCARE COVERED FOR 2018

 

ENROLL NOV 1 – DEC 15

The Affordable Care Act is still the law. SIMS can help you get health insurance.

If you are a musician or music industry professional, you may qualify for a special program that pays your healthcare premiums each month for 2018.

SIMS offers this program through Sendero Health Plans that allows musicians, music industry professionals, and their immediate family members to get their monthly healthcare bill free. It’s first come, first served, so don’t wait until Dec 15!

If you work in live or recorded music in Austin, you could be eligible. If you are a roadie, sound engineer, lighting technician, work at a music venue, record label, music management company – you could get free healthcare.

This program is a partnership between SIMS Foundation, Health Alliance for Austin Musicians, Sendero Health Plans, Central Health, and Foundation Communities. This is a health plan on healthcare.gov.
