Health and Dental Benefits

We provide artist health and dental insurance:

Artists’ Network and PlanDirect have partnered together to provide artists with access to subsidized individual health and dental insurance.

Underwritten by Great West Life, PlanDirect offers five different plan designs, plus several optional benefits to choose from. Unlike many health insurance plans, there is no lifetime maximum or termination age. With PlanDirect, you are covered if you move to another province in Canada as long as you continue to qualify for your provincial health plan.

You are guaranteed acceptance for the core plans at Preferred rates regardless of your medical history. All artists in Canada are eligible to apply to this group plan through the Artists’ Network. Membership in the Artists' Network is not a requirement and this group policy is offered to all artists. We feel it is important that everyone has the appropriate coverage.
