Health Insurance for Artists session on March 17th
Health insurance is a proven gateway towards better maintenance of one’s health. It keeps the costs of doctors’ visits, preventative services as well as hospital and emergency services lower than what folks would see if they paid out of pocket. And a recent report found that an additional 1.3 million uninsured single young adults will be able to get coverage through the Marketplace for $50 a month or less after tax credits, with Even more able to receive a plan for less than $100.
You may qualify for lower costs on the Marketplace if you:
- Are not offered health insurance through your job.
- Are a U.S. citizen or permanent resident
- Have a household income between $11,490 - $45,960 as an individual or between $23,550 - $94,200 as a family of four.
- Small businesses will also have their own Small Business Health Options Program (SHOP) Marketplace: healthcare.gov/small-businesses.
The Arts Council of New Orleans, in partnership with the New Orleans Health Department, is hosting an informational session on March 17th 2014 at 3:30 p.m. to discuss potential health insurance options that might be available to you through the new federal Healthcare program.

Hello folks, meet Dolita Brown. You may recognize Dolita’s welcoming smile from the Arts Market information tent or, up until a few weeks ago, from her post at the front of the Arts Council office. You may have thought Dolita was our receptionist— but she is so much more to the Arts Council.
As Membership Manager, Dolita has revamped our membership program and boldly set a goal to DOUBLE ARTS COUNCIL MEMBERSHIP BEFORE THE END OF THE YEAR.
Why this year? We have a new CEO and lots of ideas for enhancing the local arts community so we think there’s no better time to welcome new friends into the Arts Council. And besides, as patient and sweet as Dolita is, she’s a real go-getter and thinks it’s about time that folks realized how cool the Arts Council really is.
