Fractured Atlas Members And Their Families In 29 States And Washington, DC
Are Eligible To Enroll In Aetna's Variety Of Affordable Health Plans
NEW YORK, March 3 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Fractured Atlas, a nonprofit organization that serves a national community of artists and arts organizations, announced today that Aetna Advantage Plans are now available to its members in 29 states and Washington, DC.
According to the U.S. Department of Labor and research conducted by Fractured Atlas, there are roughly 300,000 uninsured artists in the United States. Aetna Advantage Plans provide three PPO plans available to more than 50,000 members of the Fractured Atlas Open Arts Network.
Fractured Atlas knows of no other national organization offering this type of comprehensive health coverage with criteria for membership based on self- identifying as an artist. Aetna Advantage Plans are now available to Fractured Atlas members who qualify for coverage.
"We know individuals who purchase health insurance on their own have a variety of life circumstances that create a wide range of needs and preferences, and the members of Fractured Atlas are no exception," said Frank McCauley, head of Aetna's Consumer Business Segment. "The plans and services we are offering to Fractured Atlas should address their unique needs and provide their members and their families with high-quality, affordable health insurance coverage."
Fractured Atlas' founder, Adam Forest Huttler, has been researching quality, affordable coverage that could be made available on a national or near-national basis for nearly seven years.
Fractured Atlas has been the leading provider of affordable health
insurance to artists in NY State since 2001, but finding appropriate
options outside of NY has been nearly impossible. "Several times a year for
the past seven years we've contacted all the major insurance companies and
tried to negotiate something," Forest Huttler said.
