Health Insurance

We're all familiar with the starving artist stereotype, well that just might be a bad case of tape worm. The good news is that slots are now open in Washington State's Basic Health care plan...

The Washington State Health Care Authority has announced 4,000 new slots for eligible residents in the Basic Health program. Part of the Washington Artists Health Insurance Project (WAHIP), a long-term effort to improve artists' access to health insurance in this state, Basic Health is state-sponsored and provides affordable health care coverage through private health plans.

The program covers Washington state residents who are within specific income guidelines and who are not eligible for Medicare, not institutionalized at the time of enrollment, and not attending school full time in the United States on a student visa. For income guidelines click here.
