New York (PRWEB) August 19, 2008
New York City based 501(c) 3 non-profit Art For Progress (AFP) is pleased to announce a new partnership with Atlantis Health Plans and Vista Health Solutions to provide affordable access to health insurance for New York City based artists, supporting members and their families.
Frank Jackson, Director of Art For Progress, has had a long career working in health policy and management. With his experience and knowledge from administering health programs, he began to research various programs available in New York City. He was able to negotiate directly with Atlantis Health Plans to assure some of the best rates available. Though affordable rates are important, Mr. Jackson secured plans with low deductibles, a $20 discount off of monthly premiums, and administration and application fees waived for members of the organization. With this new program he believes AFP is truly expanding access to health care in the community.
Individuals who are not part of AFP's artist program can also qualify for participation in the health insurance program by purchasing a supporting membership to the organization.
Some examples of people who may be interested in this program include:
1) Self- employed individuals
2) Full-time employees who do not receive benefits from their employers
3) Part-time employees
4) Recent college graduates
6) Retirees who do not qualify for Medicare
7) Unemployed persons
8) Immigrants who have recently moved to the U.S.
9) People looking for short-term health insurance
10) Individuals coming off of a Cobra health care plan
Pay on a month-to-month basis with the option to stop the insurance at any point in time with no risk of penalty. You can make payments using a credit card, check, bank draft, or online bill payment through http://www.nychealthplan.com
