Health insurance for OSM members through the Arts & Entertainment Plan®

Need personal health insurance? OSM members have access to the popular Arts & Entertainment Plan – an affordable health insurance plan offered by the not-for-profit insurer Affinity Programs and Business Development (AFBS). Accessing the plan has become even easier with the new quoting and online enrollment functionality which boasts the fastest application process in Canada.

The Arts & Entertainment Plan® is designed to help artists manage their health care costs. OSM members are guaranteed acceptance* into the plan, with no medical questionnaires necessary and no refusals based on pre-existing conditions.

There are two plan options: Standard and Comprehensive. Both options offer dental, prescription drug, extended health care (hospital room, acupuncture, massage, etc.), and travel emergency medical coverage. Both options also provide life and AD&D insurance and a Member and Family Assistance Program. A monthly payment option available and premiums may be tax deductible.

The Arts & Entertainment Plan® website will provide a price quote in just two steps and enables enrolment in the plan and payment online by credit card. Once registered, access will be granted to a new member portal where members can login and view their account details.
